Very good with classic working gun character, retaining 20% original blue finish mainly in sheltered areas and traces of the original case colors with most having silvered and the balance a smooth grey patina and some scattered light pitting. The wood is good with numerous scattered dings, a gouge on the left side of the forend, and scratches scattered throughout. Mechanically excellent. This rifle has all of the hallmarks of a well used and well cared for Winchester Model 1886 that saw a lifetime of service.
