Rating Definition:

Fine, retains 98% of the period refinished blue finish with a few scattered light handling marks and the magazine showing a mix of brown and grey patina. The refinished wood is also very fine with a discreet splice in the pistol grip and otherwise very minimal handling marks. Mechanically excellent.
