Rating Definition:

Excellent, retaining 98% original blue with some scratches and dings ahead of the barrel markings and 99% original case colors. The wood is very good with a few scattered dings and light scratches and sharp checkering. The case is excellent. The right ejector is activated on unfired chambers, otherwise mechanically excellent.
