Busy day, I needed this. Key selling point:

"Hand polished with steel wool."

It wasn't rough-scraped with a wire wheel and buffing wheel like all your other guns are. No sir, this one was lovingly, carefully,"polished"...with steel hand. This is an artisan skill, the hallmark of someone with a keen eye for quality and a meticulous aesthetic.

We probably need a sticky with an unofficial glossery.

Buffed/sanded/stripped barrels = "hand polished"
Cut shotgun barrels = "coach gun" or "cowboy gun"
Cut rifle barrels = "carbine" or "saddle gun"
85% gun = "minty"
70% gun = "excellent"
50% gun = "club gun"
35% gun = "servicable" or "shooter"
utter trash = "gunsmith special"
not even uncommon = "scarce"
uncommon = "rare"
rust = "patina"
