  • Fine. Barrels retain a wonderful light brown restored finish. Receiver and appended metal retain traces of case colors being mostly a worn silver/gray patina. Stock with its slightly chipped toe is otherwise sound and retains generous amount of an old restored finish with a large smooth depression on right side of buttstock with other small handling marks. Right ejector is not functioning, otherwise mechanics are fine, bright shiny bores with scattered pitting.
