Good. Retains some blue with a mostly oxidized plum-brown patina with some scattered pinpricking and minor surface roughness. Clear markings on barrel, mechanically functional, fair bore with strong rifling and moderate pitting along its length. Trigger and front sight are old replacements. Numbers mismatched, grips replaced and sanded.
