Very good. Retains some thinning blue, stronger on frame than barrel with scattered surface oxidation, particularly on the front strap and back strap. Strawed parts retain some strong traces, with fading and oxidized freckling. Markings remain clear, mechanically functional, good bore with moderate oxidation. Grips with some wear, minor flattening to the checkering and some handling marks. Drum magazine, loading tool and accessories about good to very good.
