Rating Definition:

Excellent, with 90% plus of the original du-lite finish, showing bright edge wear, a few areas of gray patina, and extensive scattered scratches and handling marks. Grips are excellent, with light pressure dents. Holster is very good, with minor scuffs and a very small amount of lost stitching. Mechanically excellent.
