Rating Definition:

Period refurbished. All parts have been replated in nickel, with 95% remaining showing a number of small dings around the wedge and bottom of the barrel lug, some flaking on the trigger guard and overall some scattered minor dings and scratches. The wedge screw is marred. There is no visible cylinder scene. The grips are a bit oversized and remain very good a couple minor age cracks and overall minor scratches and handling marks. Mechanically fine. The holster and belt are both good with some minor age crack, mostly on the belt.
