Rating Definition:

Excellent plus, retains 98% plus of the bright original high polish blue finish with some faint thinning on the barrel band and buttplate, some storage grease residue on the receiver and magazine, and a few small scattered patches of very light surface pitting on the right of the barrel. The oil-finished stock and forearm are also excellent plus with few very minor handling or storage marks. This is an exceptional example of a Winchester Model 1895 carbine in outstanding condition!
