Very fine, retains 85% plus of the original blue finish with the balance having thinned to mostly a smooth grey patina, most noticeably on the grip straps and edges. The lightly sanded and revarnished grips are fine with some scattered light handling marks. Mechanically excellent. The holster rig is fine with moderate wear on the holster, lighter on other components.
