Rating Definition:

Excellent, with 95% plus of the original blue finish, showing some bright edge wear and mild handling marks overall. The grips are very food, with some dings and flat spots. The holster is very good and shows wear and cracking appropriate for age and use, with some stitching loss on the flap. Mechanically excellent.
