Rating Definition:

Very fine as embellished and refurbished by Griffin & Howe with 95% plus high quality blue finish remains with some light handling marks overall. The stock is also very fine with well-defined checkering, some scattered small dings, and mild edge wear on the buttplate. Mechanically excellent. Scope is very good with some mild wear on the exterior and clear optics.
