Rating Definition:

Very fine, retains 85% original blue finish with smooth brown patina on the balance. Stock is also very fine with defined edges, a few light cracks on either side of the front of the forend, and some light handling marks. Mechanically functions, requires manual assistance to operate the bolt due to hanging up. Scope is very fine with slightly hazy optics and very fine mount.
