Rating Definition:

Fine. The revolver retains 93% plus of the original nickel finish with scattered light scratches overall, a light cylinder drag line and some muzzle wear on both sides. The replacement pearl grips are fine with a few light handling marks and a slight discoloration at the top of the left panel. The red insert in the front sight is discolored. Mechanically excellent. The case is fine with some edge/corner wear and light handling marks. The hardware has darkened with age and the lining is lightly soiled and shows a small tear with some fraying at the edges.
