Rating Definition:

Excellent, retains 98% plus of the original blue finish with only the slightest handling marks and a light cylinder drag line. 97% of the vivid case colors remain on the hammer and trigger. The grips are also excellent with a light scratch on the butt of the right panel and otherwise only the slightest handling marks. Mechanically excellent. One would search a very long time to find a better example!
