Excellent, retains 90% plus of the original parkerized finish with the balance having thinned to a smooth grey patina, primarily in the form of light holster wear, and a faint takedown mark. The grips are excellent with only the slightest handling marks and crisp checkering. Mechanically excellent. The holster and magazine pouch are very fine with some light wear.
