Rating Definition:

Very fine, retaining 85% plus refinished blue on the barrels, 75% original case colors, and 50% reapplied blue on the triggerguard, showing light handling evidence with some finish wear and thinning in areas. The wood is very good with minor dings and scratches, mostly in the stock, a crack coming off of the right side of the butt, and overall crisp sharp checkering. Mechanically excellent.
