Very fine. The rifle retains 75% plus original blue finish with the balance a smooth brown patina. Faded traces of case colors remain. The wood is very fine with a couple minor gouges and some minor handling marks with most of the varnish remaining. There are some scattered blemishes in the overall crisp checkering. Mechanically excellent.
