Rating Definition:

Very fine. The barrel and ejector rod housing retain 85% original blue finish with some holster type wear. The replacement cylinder retains 90% plus original blue finish. The grip straps retain 85% original blue finish with thinning on the balance. 95% plus original case colors remain on the hammer and frame. The replacement grips are also very fine with some minor handling marks, a few typical age lines and attractive color and grain. Mechanically excellent.
