The receiver also has an artificial smooth brown patina with scattered traces of original blue finish heaviest in the protected areas. Most of the original blue finish remains on the lower tang. The lever has a smooth gray patina with flashes of original case colors, and the buttplate has a smooth mottled gray patina. The revarnished wood is good with only some slight handling marks. The markings are clear and crisp. The action is very good.
