Excellent, retaining 98% original blue finish, some areas of minor spotting, and general light handling evidence. The wood is very good with a few visible repairs on each side of the stock head and the toe, scattered minor scratches, and sharp checkering. The scope optics are mostly clear with minor hazing. Mechanically, rear sight does not stand, otherwise excellent.
