Very good. Barrel and frame retain most of the thinned blue which has turned plum, cylinder with some bright blue, the balance flaked and worn. Mechanically functional, very good bore with some scattered oxidation and roughness. Grip crisp with fine checkering and some scattered handling marks. Accessories very good to fine. Case very good with scattered wear, scuffs, dings and mars.
