Very good. Revolver retains some areas of bright blue with most lost to flaking. The balance shows a moderately oxidized brown patina with some scattered surface roughness. Markings legible, mechanically functional, but the trigger return spring needs work as the trigger does not completely reset after it is pulled. Very good bore with some moderate oxidation in the grooves. Grips with crisp checkering and some scattered bumps and dings. Case very good with some exterior wear and minor mars, interred with some wear and fading and an area of damage caused by the rear sight. Accessories all about very good.
