Rating Definition:

Fine. The rifle retains 40% of the original blue finish with scattered scratches and dings and aging to a smooth brown patina. 50% of the original nitre blue remains on the loading gate. The markings are legible. The reoiled wood is very good with scattered scratches, dings and a small area cut out for a tang mounted peep sight. The upper tang has been crudely drilled and tapped. Mechanically excellent.
