Excellent. The rifle retains 90% plus original high gloss blue finish with a smooth brown patina on the balance. The hammer, lever and buttplate retain 95% original case colors. The wood is very fine with a couple deep pressure dents and some minor handling marks with most of the finish remaining. Mechanically excellent.
