Rating Definition:

Fine. 60% of the original high polish blue finish, remains with a gray patina on the grip straps and high edges, mild spotting and scattered handling marks. Vivid niter blue is present on the trigger and extractor with lightly faded case colors on the hammer. Grips are good as sanded/recheckered with some dents and flat spots. A 1 1/2 inch vertical crack is visible in the front of the otherwise very good magazine. Mechanically excellent.
