Rating Definition:

Very good, with 30% of the original blue finish, concentrated chiefly on the underside of the slide and protected areas of the frame, with a mixed brown and gray patina overall, scattered spotting, bright edge wear and mild handling marks. Grips are about good, with "W B" scratched into the right panel, a number of heavy dents towards the bottom, and some light scuffing overall. Mechanically excellent.
