Rating Definition:

Very good, with half of the period refurbished brown finish remaining on the barrel, with areas of gray patina, light scratches and strong twist pattern. The frame and hammer are brightly cleaned, with light spotting and scratches. Grips are fine, with a few small pressure dents. Mechanically very good.
