Very good. Retains moderate amounts of thinning blue mixed with a smooth gray patina. Most of the loss and thinning is from holster wear and handling. Markings clear, mechanically functional, very good bore with scattered oxidation and some frosting. Grips with some smoothing and high edge wear, as well as some handling marks. Holster very good with scuffs and surface wear.

Estimate: $1,000 - $1,200
