Rating Definition:

Excellent, retaining 95% original blue finish with light handling marks and a couple small spots near the muzzle. Wood is very fine with scattered light dings and scratches, patches of touch up varnish, and crisp checkering. Mechanically excellent. Scope is very good with hazy optics and a crisp reticle.
