Rating Definition:

Fine. The barrel and magazine retain 70% original blue finish with thinning to brown on the balance. There are some scattered dents visible on left side of barrel around the rear sight. The breech bolt retains 85% original blue finish. 30% original nitre blue remains on the loading gate. 30% original case colors remain on the mostly silvered out receiver. The wood is very good with a couple of small chips on upper tang and a number of scattered minor dings and scratches. Mechanically excellent.
