Rating Definition:

Very fine, retains 85% plus of the likely original finish with the balance having thinned to mostly a smooth grey patina, primarily on the grip straps and left of the barrel. The grips are also very fine with a minor chip absent from the top of the left panel, scattered minor dings, and otherwise crisp checkering. Mechanically excellent.
