Rating Definition:

Very fine, retains 80% of the original parkerized finish with some light edge/slide retraction wear and some scattered light handling/takedown marks. The grips are also very fine with a few scattered light blemishes in the otherwise crisp checkering. Mechanically excellent. The holster is very fine with some light wear.
