Excellent. The carbine retains 97% original blue finish with some minor thinning (mostly on the barrel), with some light spotting. The lever retains 95% original case colors with the balance fading to a smooth silver-gray patina with a patch of minor pitting. The buttplate has a mixed gray patina with a patch of pin point pitting. The wood is excellent with some minor dings and scratches. Mechanically excellent.
