    I think the Bluebook pricing assumes no import markings. Depending on the desirability of the model, the impact of import markings can lower value by 30-50% for a comparable condition non-import gun.

    For a presentation gun, the grips don't appear to be very well fit or mated to the frame. Also the barrel looks to have had alot of use [as does rest of gun] for a presentation piece.

    Alvin, your right. The grips are numbered to the gun, but the right grip fits loosely, I didn't get it back in completely after I had looked them over. Will need to remedy that.
