Rating Definition:

Very fine, retains 99% of the factory quality, professionally restored, blue, 90% of the vibrant case colors and 95% plus of the nitre blue on the loading gate with the balance having thinned to a smooth grey patina. The refinished wood is also very fine with a few scattered minor dings and scratches. Mechanically excellent.
