Rating Definition:

Very fine, retaining 98% plus of the factory reapplied nickel finish with a cylinder drag line and flash marks on the front cylinder face. The grips are also very fine with minimal handling marks and crisp checkering overall. Mechanically excellent. The case is very good with minor handling/storage marks and some worn lining.
