I'd also mention that wear is one thing, marks from improper assembly or amateur gunsmithing is another. Even as a shooter, I'm not going to buy a gun that has even a small gouge left by someone using a hammer and punch to bash out a rear sight, nor would I trust that any gun wasn't toyed with if there are other signs of work done with improper tools.

I have very few safe queens which exist only because they're hard to find and in great condition, some being very old on top of it. Holster wear actually looks good on a lot of pistols, but improper maintenance and marks from poor work dosn't.
