Rating Definition:

Very fine as arsenal refurbished, with 98% plus parkerized finish, showing some mild handling marks. The stock is also excellent, with some light dings and scratches. Aside from some fraying of the horizontal crosshair, the scope is in very fine condition with crisp optics. Mechanically excellent.
