Rating Definition:

Fine. The barrels retain 50% original blue finish with the balance a smooth brown patina along with a couple patches of rust. The brass frame has an attractive aged patina. The grips are very good with a vertical crack visible on the right panel and some high edge wear and handling marks. Mechanically excellent.
