Excellent. The rifle retains approximately 90% of the original blue finish on the receiver. The barrel has nearly 95% of the original blue finish with the exception of scratches and minor scuffmarks along the right side. There is edge wear along the top and high points of the receiver and on the contact points of the receiver linkage. The magazine has a gray parkerized finish. The fancy walnut stock and forearm are in very good to excellent condition. The checkered panels on the forearm and stock wrist are sharp. Nearly all of the varnish finish is present. Wear is limited to several minor scratches and very light handling marks. The rubber recoil pad has collapsed and appears to be original to the rifle. This is an attractive example of a Deluxe Winchester Model 1895 Lever Action Rifle.
