Rating Definition:

Excellent, retains 95% plus of the original blue finish and 90% plus of the original case colors with the balance having thinned to mostly a smooth grey patina, primarily on top forward slide, and a few scattered patches of very light pitting. The grips are also excellent with a few scattered light blemishes in the overall crisp checkering. Mechanically excellent.
