Fine overall, showing 70% strong Damascus pattern, an attractive mix of brown and grey patina on the balance of barrel. 40% original case colors remain on the receiver mostly in the protected areas, light handling evidence, moderate dings and scratches in the stock, and mostly crisp wood checkering. Mechanically excellent.
