Rating Definition:

Very fine, with 80% plus original blue finish, showing areas of brown and gray patina, bright edge wear and mild handling marks. 60% of the straw color is present, along with 50% of the niter blue concentrated on the sear spring. The grips are very good, with some minor staining and dings on the otherwise sharp checkering. The leather is very good overall, with cracking and tearing of the straps and mild cuts and scuffs on the main body and flap of the holster, and the stock shows mild dings and dents. Mechanically excellent.
