Very good, retains 30% original brown finish, strong traces of original case colors visible with smooth brown patina and some scattered spotting and light pitting on the balance. Hammer is a refinished replacement. Stock is good as lightly sanded and re-oiled with various filled in cracks and repairs, and some scattered light pressure dents and scratches. Mechanically excellent.
