Rating Definition:

Excellent. The pistol retains 95% plus original blue finish remains with some light high point and edge wear and handling marks overall. The grips are very fine with moderately worn checkering and small dings. Mechanically excellent. Box is good with corner and edge wear, separated corners on the lid, tape repairs, and discoloration.
