Rating Definition:

Very fine overall as custom embellished/upgraded to current configuration, retaining 99% blue and gold finishes with limited handling evidence and sharp checkering on the stock and forend. The 28 gauge barrel set is near mint and the 20 gauge set is very fine but has some oxidation under the rib. The case is excellent. Mechanically excellent.
