Rating Definition:

Excellent, retaining 98% original blue finish with a few minor handling marks, slight loss at the muzzle, moderate wear on the face of the recoil shield, and a light cylinder drag line. Grips are fine with some wear at the front of the thumb groove on the left panel and crisp checkering. Mechanically excellent. Case is very good with some storage and handling marks, edge wear, a relined bottom with replacement insert (original insert and fabric included), and some high edge wear on the lid interior.
