Excellent, retains 95% plus original blue and 97% plus vivid casehardened finishes with some light handling marks. Wood is also excellent with crisp checkering, some scattered light scratches and handling marks, a few moderate pressure dents on either side of the wrist, and defined edges. Mechanically functions fine, although the lever needs to be manually reset in order to close the barrel.
