Fine. The rifle retains 40% original blue finish with the balance a smooth brown patina. 30% of original case colors remain on the hammer and lever. The loading gate retains 30% original nitre blue. The wood is also fine with some scattered minor pressure dings and scratches. Mechanically excellent.
