Fine. The barrel and magazine tube retain 70% original thinning blue finish with edge wear and areas giving way to a smooth plum patina. The receiver has a smooth mottled grayish brown patina with traces of original blue finish in protected areas. The loading gate assembly retains half of the original blue finish (20% mixed with smooth gray patina on the loading gate). The hammer and lever have a smooth gray patina with flashes of original case colors in the protected areas. The wood is very good with almost all of the original varnish remaining and showing some scattered minor dents and dings. The markings are clear. The action is excellent.
