Very sharp and crisp revolver. Barrel housing has nice plum patina. Cylinder and frame has plum patina that evenly matches and shows some traces of blue finish blending in. Hammer has traces of color with two small areas of staining. Grips are excellent. Overall one of the better Baby LeMats known.
