Very good as partially refinished. The barrel retains 90% thinning original blue finish. The receiver, lever and forend cap retain 30% original blue finish with the balance an artificial smooth brown patina with some minor pitting (mostly on the right side of receiver). The buttplate has a smooth gray patina. The refinished wood is fine with a couple long cuts on the underside of the buttstock and some scattered minor handling marks.
