Fine. The barrels retain 40% original blue the balance has thinned along high edges and is a mottled gray/dark patina showing some minor handling marks overall. The frame is now a pleasantly aged dark mustard patina with some scattered handling marks and a few dark spots. The grips are fine exhibiting minor pressure marks and may have had an extra coat of varnish applied some time ago. Mechanically fine.
