Rating Definition:

Excellent. The revolver retains all of the original blue and casehardened finish with only light handling marks. One of the frame screws is slightly marred. The grips are near new with the left panel being slightly warped at the bottom. The case is good with scattered minor scratches and dings on the exterior and one latch is absent.
