Rating Definition:

Excellent, retaining 99% plus original nickel plating with a light cylinder drag line and limited handling marks. Nearly all original case colors remain on the hammer and trigger. The grips are also excellent with limited handling marks and crisp checkering. Mechanically excellent. The box is very fine showing minimal wear.
