About good. The barrel has been cleaned and has extensive minor to deep pitting. The lock and hammer have also been cleaned and have minor pitting. The brass is fine. The stock is good with a cracked wrist, a repair near the toe, and some minor cracks, along with some minor dings and scratches and a couple minor dents and gouges.
