Rating Definition:

Very fine, retains 90% arsenal refurbished parkerized finish with some light cycling wear and some scattered patches of light pitting and surface corrosion mostly concentrated on the wire stock. 60% original blue finish remains on the bolt. Stock is also very fine as lightly sanded and re-oiled with crisp markings, some light handling marks, a small crack ahead of the left corner of the recoil shield and mostly defined edges. Mechanically excellent. Included jump sleeve, magazine pouch and magazines are all fine.
