Rating Definition:

Very fine, with 80% of the current blue finish, showing areas of brown and gray patina, mild spotting, bright edge wear and minor handling marks. Some dings are visible on the sear bar. The grips are fine, with some dents, stains and flat spots. The holster is very good, with mild cracking and scuffing. Mechanically excellent.
