I've been given an early Arriflex II 35mm camera, and I know the pull down arm or claw was greatly improved with the IIc, but how good is picture stabilization on the early movement has anyone every shot with one?
It all depends on the condition & servicing of the camera, at 24/25 it should be pretty good.

For a 60-odd year old camera the condition is everything. Has it been regularly maintained? Has it done 3 million feet? Has someone who didn't know what they were doing fiddled with it?
A maintained Arri II should be pretty stable at normal speeds, but to know just how steady your particular one is, you need to shoot a registration test.
