Rating Definition:

Very good, retains 40% plus original blue finish and strong traces of original case colors with the balance thinned to a smooth grey patina and some cold blue touch up visible over some scattered patches of light pitting on the barrel towards the muzzle. The lightly sanded and refinished wood is very good with some minor dings and scratches scattered throughout. Mechanically excellent.
