Rating Definition:

Excellent. The barrels retain 99% original finish with some thinning on the lower barrel from sliding the forearm forward while breaking it down, otherwise only light handling marks. The remaining metal retains 98% original coin finish with some minor wear on the trigger guard tang. The wood is excellent retaining most of the original high gloss finish and showing a couple of nicks on the bottom of the stock and light handling marks overall. The checkering remains crisp. Mechanically excellent.
