Rating Definition:

Excellent. The barrel and magazine retain 98% original blue finish. The bolt retains 98% original blue finish. The receiver retains 99% plus vivid original case colors. 97% original case colors remain on the hammer and lever. The buttplate has faded to a gray with slight faded hints of original case colors. 97% original niter blue remains on the loading gate. The wood is also excellent with some minor handling marks and most of the original varnish remaining. Mechanically excellent. A great example of an early 20th century Marlin Model 1894 Rifle with highly attractive case colors.
