Rating Definition:

Very good, showing mostly a smooth grey-brown patina with a few scattered patches of light pitting and crisp engraving. The grips are fine with some scattered minor dings and chips in the varnish. Mechanically needs adjustment as the ring trigger does not consistently engage the mechanism. The case and remaining accessories are all very good with a few scattered minor dings.
