Very good. Bore is bright and rifling is sharp. Item is a late war production and exhibits machine marks overall. There is some thinning to finish on top of slide, muzzle, and raised surface edges. Right side grip has a small crack behind grip screw, but are in great condition otherwise. Holster shows some darkened areas and light scratches overall.
