Rating Definition:

Very fine as factory refinished overall with 98% blue and vivid case colors remaining. Wear is limited to some light muzzle and edge wear. There are a few very minor dings and scratches on the barrel and cylinder. The replacement grips are also very fine with crisp checkering. The left side barrel marking and the Colt triangle proof are faint; otherwise, the markings are clear. The action is excellent.
