Action in working order but the hammer pullback is quite stiff. There is a tiny amount of side play to the hinge, a slight wobble to the barrel from left to right and a section of original finish missing to the barrel as photographed. No signs of any deactivation. Some signs of possible pitting or dirt buildup to one section of rifling to one barrel interior.
