Excellent, with over 99% original blue finish with a few light handling marks and some scattered very light spotting on the left side of the barrel and receiver. The stock is also excellent with only the slightest handling marks and retaining almost all of the varnish. The exterior of the case is excellent; the lining is beginning to deteriorate.
