Rating Definition:

Fine. The barrel retains 80% original blue finish with thinning to brown on the balance. The remaining surfaces retain patterns of original case colors, otherwise faded to a mottled gray. The wood is fine with a couple stress lines at the receiver, minor dings and scratches and most of the original varnish remaining. Mechanically excellent.
