Good. Retains much of the blued finish, although the weakness of the frame proofs suggest that at least the frame was refurbished at some point. Still the blue shows real world thinning and wear with some lightly scattered oxidation. Small parts with strong traces of straw color. Markings clear with the exception of the proofs on the right of the frame. Mechanically functional, good bore with scattered oxidation. Grips with expected wear and some flattening to the checkering. Holster very good.
