Very fine. The rifle retains 75% original blue finish showing thinning to a brown on the balance. There are a few patches of minor pitting on the bolt and buttplate. 30% of original case colors remain on the hammer and lever. The wood is also very fine with some-moderate minor pressure dents and scratches. Mechanically excellent.
