Fine. The barrel and magazine tube have 70% faded original blue with the balance a smooth brown patina. The receiver retains 60% plus original blue finish with the balance smooth plum patina. The bolt retains 90% original blue finish with some minor spotting. The hammer retains most of the original case colors and the lever retains half of the muted original case colors. The wood is very fine with some scattered minor dents and scratches. The markings are crisp and clear. The action is excellent.
