Excellent. The barrel retains 95% plus original blue finish showing some muzzle and edge wear, and areas thinning to a smooth plum. The receiver retains 90% plus original slightly fading case colors with a smooth dove gray on the balance. The breech block and hammer retain 98% original bright niter blue finish. The wood is also excellent with a few overall scattered minor dents and scratches. The markings are clear. The action is excellent.
