CONDITION: Excellent plus in original box with 98% original finish, some light muzzle and cylinder wear from light use, and faint handling and storage marks. The grips are also excellent plus and have crisp checkering. Mechanically excellent. The box is fine and has moderate age and storage related wear, including some torn lid edges and corners.
