Rating Definition:

Good with mottled gray and brown patina and moderate pitting on the lock and barrel, file marks on the replacement cock, attractive aged patina on the brass, and general moderate overall wear. The refinished stock is also good with a repair on the left side of the forend, general mild scratches and dings, and what appears to be burn damage on the right side of the butt. Mechanically fine.
