Rating Definition:

Excellent, retains 90% plus original parkerized finish with some light finish loss concentrated around the front sight and base, 80% original blue finish on the rear sight, and half of the original blue finish on the bolt sleeve. Stock is very fine with defined edges and a few light handling marks. Mechanically excellent. Included bayonet and scabbard are both fine, the left grip panel of the bayonet has a mild crack.
