Rating Definition:

Excellent, retaining 98% plus original blue and 99% original casehardened finishes with a few scratches on the right barrel. The forend has a small chip at the front right, otherwise the wood is fine with light handling evidence and mostly sharp checkering. The case is good with deteriorating interior. Mechanically excellent.
