Rating Definition:

Excellent, with 90% plus of the original blue finish, showing bright edge wear, small patches of oxidization on the left side of the muzzle and the frame, and mild handling marks overall. The grips are very fine, with a few mild dings and scratches. The holster is fine, with mild scuffs and scratches overall. Mechanically excellent.
