Excellent condition with an excellent bore.  The pistol is near-new condition showing almost no visible wear. There is a small ding on the bottom of the magazine well and the magazine where the pistol has been dropped. This gun was a test pistol for the military as they were searching for a light weight pilot survival pistol.
