Rating Definition:

Very fine, retains 90% plus of the original blue finish and 80% plus of the original niter blue with the balance mostly a bright grey patina, primarily on edges and high spots. The grips are fine with mild wear on the right panel, a few scattered light handling marks on the balance. Mechanically excellent. The re-oiled stock is very good with a couple cracks and some scattered minor dings.
