Excellent. The rifle retains 95% plus original blue finish showing some thinning to brown on bottom of magazine tube. The hammer, lever and buttplate retain 60% original case colors. There are several minor scratches on the upper tang and frame. The wood is very fine with a number of minor pressure dents and scratches. Mechanically excellent.
