Fine, retaining 75% plus original blue finish on the barrel and magazine tube with the balance thinned to a smooth brown and gray patina as well as a few freckles of oxidation at the muzzle end. The frame retains 30% blue with the balance a brown patina. Wood is fine as revarnished with scattered scratches and dings and one deep scratch on the left side of the buttstock. Mechanically excellent.
