Excellent. The rifle retains 90% plus bright original blue finish showing a few patches of gray patina. There are some patches of minor pitting and some minor spotting on the left side of the receiver. The hammer and lever retain 95% plus original vivid case colors, and the buttplate retains some faded original case colors. The wood is very fine with a hairline crack on the forearm (left side) and some minor pressure dents and scratches. Mechanically excellent.
