Rating Definition:

Excellent, retains 99% plus of the original blue finish with a few scattered very light scratch marks visible on the front grip strap. The grips are also excellent with only the slightest handling marks and crisp checkering. Mechanically excellent. The box is also excellent with some very light corner storage wear. One will look a long time to find another example like this!
