Very good. Metal with most of the blued finish showing thinning, light wear and loss, particularly along high edges and contact points. Thinned areas developing a mostly smooth, lightly oxidized plum patina. Barrel with a couple of minor scrapes on the left side. Some strong areas of straw remain on the small parts. Markings remain clear, mechanically functional with a mostly bright bore with some frosting and oxidation in the grooves. Grips with some wear, most of the red paint in the "9" markings is worn away. Holster and shoulder stock with moderate wear, rating good to very good overall.
