Rating Definition:

Excellent, with 90% of the original blue finish, showing some wear on the high edges, cycling/handling marks, and some minor spotting. The otherwise very fine stock has a crack in the forearm just ahead of the operating rod cut, chipping at the recoil plate, and mild scuffs and dents overall. The canvas accessories are in fine order. Mechanically excellent. NOTE: This weapon is a National Firearms Act (NFA), fully transferable Class 3, which is registered with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, (BATFE) under the provisions of 18 U.S.C. Chapter 44 and 27 CFR part 478.
