Rating Definition:

Excellent, retains 95% of the original parkerized finish with the balance having thinned to mostly a smooth grey patina and some scattered light dings. The grips are very fine with some scattered minor handling marks and otherwise crisp checkering. Mechanically excellent. The holster is fine with some mild wear and scuffs.
