VG+, as reworked a long time ago, determined by blueing inside slide and frame, areas that originally would have been in-the-white. Darkly oiled grips with a few areas of blunting and checkering loss. Comparable condition magazine. Bright bore with sharp rifling. Perfect manual mechanics. A very attractive and all matching Astra M400 (1921) with an interesting military background.
