Excellent, retaining 90% original blue finish with scattered light specks of surface oxidation on the grip straps and a couple patches of gray on the barrel. The frame retains 95% plus vivid original case colors. The replacement grips are very fine with a few minor handling marks and overall crisp checkering. Mechanically excellent.
