ConditionExcellent with 99% of the original blued finish with barely noticeable high spot holster wear. The grips are also in excellent condition with nice sharp checkering on both sides, with only a few minor dings. The holster is also in excellent condition with nice tight stitching overall with only minor scuffing and finish loss on the very edges of the flap and the lower section of the magazine pouch. An exceptional, all original example of a World War II Nazi 1939 Luger rig.
