Very fine as professionally custom embellished/built, retains 99% original blue finish on the barrel, 99% refinished vivid case colors, and 80% silver finish on the buttplate. Wood is also very fine with crisp checkering, cracks on either side of the buttstock, some light handling marks and defined edges. Mechanically excellent.
