Excellent. The revolver retains 97% original blue finish showing a few scattered areas of minor thinning and a light cylinder drag line. There are three nicks on the trigger guard. Nearly all of the original case colors remain on the hammer and trigger. The grips are excellent with some minor handling marks on the bottom and crisp checkering overall. Mechanically excellent.
