Rating Definition:

Fine, retains 60% plus of the original blue finish on the barrel, 70% plus of the original blue on the frame, and 40% of the original case colors on the lever and hammer with the balance having thinned to mostly a smooth grey patina, primarily on the buttplate, edges, and high spots. The wood is also fine with some light scratches and dings scattered throughout. Mechanically excellent.
