Rating Definition:

Very fine, retaining 99% professionally reapplied blue finish, 97% original case colors on the action, and areas of light freckling. The wood is also very fine with a small chip in the left of the forend, minor marks, and sharp checkering. The case is also very fine with light wear. Mechanically excellent.
