Turk Collection

Rating Definition:

Excellent plus, retains 99% of the original nickel finish with some scattered light spotting and a patch of very light flaking on the right of the frame in front of the cylinder. The etched panel is crisp. The grips are also excellent with a minor flat spot on the left, a few scattered light handling marks, and otherwise crisp checkering. Mechanically excellent.
