Rating Definition:

Very fine, retains 98% arsenal refinished parkerized finish with some light cycling wear. 75% original blue finish remains on the bolt. Stock is also very fine as revarnished with some light handling marks, a few light scratches, some light crazing, a minor chipped area below the left edge of the receiver, a light scuff on the left of the forend area, and mostly defined edges. Mechanically excellent. Included jump sleeve is fine.
