Good. Bore is bright with moderate amounts of oxidation to rifling. Finish remains mostly in tact, but has areas of pitting and surface oxidation overall. Wood grips are in great condition. Holster appears to be in great condition aside from some exterior scratches overall.

May need mechanical attention: slide does not appear to close unless extra force is applied to pull the toggle link back until a click is heard, and extractor goes back to firing position. 

Estimate: $1,000 - $1,500
