Very good. Revolver retains much of the fading and thinning blue which is dulling and shows wear. Some areas with a lightly oxidized plum patina and some flecks of surface roughness. Mechanically functional, good bore with some pitting. Grip very good with some wear. Casing with moderate wear and scuffing on the exterior and more serious wear on the interior with fading, fabric damage and loss and some wood chipped and gone a the rear left corner and front left corner.
