Item sold - thanks for the interest! Belt has very minimal edge wear and even less actual surface wear. Nickel-plated components are in great condition; small amount of finish wear on one of the metal fasteners near the buckle hardware. Purchased from Copquest.com on 5/14/2006 for $36.40. Item currently sells at Copquest.com for $38.40. Reason for selling: I typically wear 33"-34" jeans and slacks, so there's not quite as much length to the belt as I would like, particularly for IWB; beyond that, the item provides fantastic support for my G23 in a DeSantis Speed Scabbard / CTAC. Asking $25 OBO - price includes UPS or FedEx ground shipping. Item will be shipped immediately after receipt of funds via Paypal payment; choice of courier depends on your preference, or if either is fine, whichever happens to be cheaper.
