CONDITION: Excellent! The pistol retains 98% original blue finish with some mild thinning on the grip straps, some scattered minor edge wear and some loss at the muzzle. There is a minor circular shaped indentation on the left panel, otherwise the grips are excellent with a few minor nicks in the overall crisp checkering. Mechanically excellent. The holster is very good with overall age cracking on the front and some minor handling marks. Overall the stitching is tight…$2,850.00.
