Very fine, retaining 85% original blue finish on the barrel with some light muzzle wear and edge wear as well as slide retraction marks on the magazine tube and action bar. Receiver retains 70% original vibrant case colors with an attractive grey patina on the balance. Wood is very fine with some scattered minor dings and scratches. Mechanically excellent.
