Rating Definition:

Excellent. The pistol retains 98% original blue finish with a minor ding on the left side of the muzzle, a few minor scratches on the underside of the barrel at the muzzle and some normal usage wear on the sides of the trigger. The grips are also excellent with a few minor dents and handling marks. The markings are crisp and clear. Mechanically excellent.
