Excellent believe it or not. I checked it at the shop kind of "once over" style for excessive wear on the forcing cone and saw very little. When I got home I lit it up and inspected a little closer. The rifling looks good, even comparable to a couple of ones I got new.
There is a slight amount of cutting on the top strap at the cylinder gap, but you wouldn't notice if you weren't looking.
And what was great also was that the older man who owns the place was a super
nice guy and an avid revolver hunter/shooter. He gently guided me away from a S&W 629-1 after asking what the intended use was going to be (heavy/mountain).
Don't get me wrong I'm still trying to come up with a plan for that one. . .
