Rating Definition:

Very fine, retaining 85% plus original blue finish with minor handling evidence, a few areas of finish wear, moderate slide retraction wear, and sharp checkering on the reoiled wood. The top of the receiver has had the top bead blasted and matte blued to reduce glare with most of the bright blue remaining on the balance. Mechanically excellent.
