Exceptionally fine, retains 80% plus of the original blue finish and 85% plus of the original case colors with the balance having thinned to mostly a smooth grey patina, primarily on the buttplate and near the muzzle. The lightly sanded and reoiled wood is fine with a small patch of filler on the left near the lock screw, some scattered minor dings and scratches, and crisp restamped cartouche. Mechanically excellent.
