Very fine, with 70% of the original blue finish, showing bright edge wear, areas of brown and gray patina, and scattered spotting and handling marks. The stock is fine, with a small crack in the wrist to the left of the trigger guard, filler applied to the toe, and a number of dents and scuffs. Mechanically excellent.
