Rating Definition:

Excellent, retains 95% plus of the original blue finish and vibrant case colors with the balance having thinned to a mostly smooth grey patina and some very light spotting on the left of the receiver. The revarnished wood is very fine with some scattered light handling marks and minor chips in the varnish. Mechanically excellent.
