Excellent, retains 97% original parkerized finish with some scattered light brown surface freckling on the barrel and light cycling wear. 97% original blue finish remains on the bolt. Stock is also excellent with some scattered light scratches, numerous compression dents visible on the right rear of the otherwise very fine handguard, a patch of light dents on the lower left of the buttstock, and mostly defined stampings. Mechanically excellent.
