Rating Definition:

Very good. The barrel and magazine retain 65% of the faded original blue finish with some minor thinning and spotting overall. The receiver shows shadows of the original case colors with strong colors on the lower tang as well as the protected areas and a smooth brown/gray patina overall. The wood is fine with some scratches and minor gouges overall. Mechanically excellent.
