Excellent, retaining 95% plus original blue with light spotting on the left of the receiver, minor slide retraction wear, and otherwise minor handling evidence. The wood is very fine with streaks of varnish absent on the comb of the buttstock, scattered light dings and scratches on the balance. Mechanically excellent.
