Excellent, 95% finish remains with wear on the muzzle and sharp edges. There are a few very minor scratches overall on the metal surfaces. There is a visible drag line on the cylinder and finish loss in the cylinder advance notches. The grips are very good with a few very minor pressure dents, the checkering shows light to moderate wear, with the checkering beginning to smooth at the bottoms. Mechanically excellent.
