Excellent, retains 95% plus of the original nickel finish and 75% of the original nitre blue with a few scattered patches of light flaking on the cylinder showing a smooth grey patina. The grips are also excellent with some scattered light handling marks and retaining almost all of the varnish. Mechanically excellent.
