Rating Definition:

Very fine with 85% plus original blue finish, scattered edge and muzzle wear, some small scattered surface scratches, and slide retraction marks on the magazine tube, action bar, and barrel. The refinished wood is also very fine with attractive grain, numerous small dings and scratches throughout, and mostly crisp checkering. Mechanically excellent.
