Rating Definition:

Excellent, retaining 95% plus original phosphate finish with handling marks, a few dings, and high edge wear. The revarnished grips are very good with a few spots of softened checkering and a few dings. The slide lock/ does not reliably activate, otherwise mechanically excellent.
