Rating Definition:

Extremely fine, retains 97% of the original parkerized finish on the frame and slide with some light edge wear and a light takedown mark. The barrel is an arsenal reparkerized replacement. The grips are also excellent with only the slightest handling marks and crisp checkering. Mechanically excellent.
