Rating Definition:

Very fine, retaining 80% original parkerized finish turning to an even smooth brown patina with a few light scratches on the barrel, light wear in the operating rod track and crisp markings in the metal overall. 75% original blue finish remains on the bolt. Stock is fine with some scattered light scratches and nicks, a moderate scuff on the left tip of the forend, applied carving and stampings as mentioned above, and mostly defined edges. Mechanically excellent.
