Rating Definition:

Excellent, retains 98% plus of the original parkerized finish with some very light holster wear, slide retraction marks on the barrel, and a light takedown mark. The grips are also excellent with a few scattered light blemishes and otherwise crisp checkering. Mechanically excellent. The accessories are very good or better with some light wear and some light oxidation on the magazines.
