Fine as arsenal refurbished. Retains nearly all of the Parkerized finish with light wear and clear markings throughout the metal, slightly weaker markings in the wood. Wood with some added finish and showing some scattered bumps and dings. Mechanically functional, near fine, mostly bright bore with some frosting and lightly scattered oxidation, retaining crisp rifling.
