Condition is very good, the optics is good but taking in to the account the time of production, please do not expect the modern optics quality, it can be a bit dim and with some imperfections, it was meant to be cheap and effective like all Russian WWII equipment, not more than that.
Elevation and windage are working good.
There are several scratches on the sight body that does not affect functioning and are normal for WWII made and used items.
If you want it to work better, you should make a good cleaning inside and outside, after all, it has spent almost 60 years conservated in the warehouse, covered with layer of famious Russian cosmoline and it did not went the de-conservation process.
