Rating Definition:

Excellent, retains 95% of the original parkerized finish with some light edge/slide retraction wear and some slight thinning on the front strap with a very small patch of light surface pitting. The grips are also excellent with only the slightest handling marks and crisp checkering. Mechanically excellent. The holster is excellent with very minimal wear.
