Rating Definition:

Excellent, with 95% plus original blue finish, showing some light edge wear and handling marks overall. Bright and vivid straw color is present on the trigger, safety and takedown lever, with fiery niter blue on the pins and sear spring. The grips are very fine, with some dark spots and dings. The holster is fine and shows mild scuffs, cracks and verdigris buildup, but remains supple with solid stitching. Mechanically excellent.
