The frame should have case colors, not the blue as shown. Red flag there. The TG and BS show remnants of silver plating. The lanyard loop on the butt is a nice addition. Too bad that the right side barrel lug is so beat up at the wedge, and the wedge screw is so buggered up. I would guess it is what would happen with soldiers in the field without proper tools.

All in all, a nice gun.

Case colors fade quickly. Even bright sunshine can fade them. I doesn't look blued - just used.
