Rating Definition:

Very fine, retaining 98% original blue finish with a few freckles on the barrels, some slight discoloration at the rear of the receiver and at the wood on the forend attaching iron, and crisp engraving. Stock is very fine with a few minor handling marks and crisp checkering overall. Mechanically excellent. Case is excellent as well with limited storage and handling marks.
