estimate the gun retains about 50% of its original finish (bluing and case
coloring). There are some scratches on the barrel. The stock has no cracks and
the checkering is still fairly sharp. There are quite a few dings in the wood,
to be expected in an 80 plus year old gun. Pistol grip cap is broken (see
photo). Bores are excellent, no pitting. Lockup is tight.
