Excellent, 97% plus of the bright original blue finish remains with some minor edge wear, scattered minor dings and scratches. 75% of the muted original case colors remain on the hammer, lever and buttplate. The stock and forearm are both very fine with scattered dings and scratches. Mechanically excellent.
