Rating Definition:

Very fine, retains 95% plus of the arsenal refinished parkerized finish with some very light edge/cycling wear and some scattered light handling/takedown marks. The grips are also very fine with light wear and some scattered light blemishes in the overall crisp checkering. Mechanically excellent.
