Rating Definition:

Very fine as professionally refurbished, retaining 99% blue finish, bright finish on the action with minor grease marks, and light handling evidence. There is a small crack at the left of the stock head, otherwise the wood is very fine with a few minor marks and sharp checkering. Mechanically excellent.
