Fine. The barrel retains 80% original blue finish with the balance a smooth brown patina with some very scattered minor spotting. The buttplate has a mixed gray patina with some minor pitting. The remaining surfaces have a smooth gray patina with traces of faint original case colors remaining. The wood is fine with numerous minor scratches , dings, and pressure marks, with some very scattered minor bruises in the overall crisp checkering. Mechanically fine.
