Good. Retains much of a later applied blue over some pitting, particularly on the barrel forward of the frame. Retains traces of what appears to be original straw on small parts. Markings remain clear, mechanically functional, good bore with scattered oxidation. Grips with some wear and marks. Holster about very good.
