Rating Definition:

Excellent, retains 95% plus original combination late war blue/phosphate finish with areas of differing color throughout. Magazine retains 97% original black painted finish. Stock is also excellent with some light scratches and handling marks, mostly visible stampings, and defined edges. Mechanically excellent. Included scope and mount are excellent, retains 95% original blue and phosphate finishes with some light freckling, and clear optics. One will look a long time to find another example in this condition with a matching numbered scope mount!
