Rating Definition:

Very fine as arsenal upgraded to National Match configuration, retains 98% of the attractive dark parkerized finish with some light edge/high spot wear and some scattered light handling marks. The grips are also very fine with a few light handling marks and crisp checkering overall. Mechanically excellent.
