Overall Condition: This rifle retains about 90% of its metal finish. The balance of the finish shows minor use / handling, but primarily poor storage. There are no mentionable scratches and only some wear on the trigger guard. The bolt handle shows some surface rust and discoloration, as does the rear of the bolt. The barrel, forward of the forearm shows some scattered surface rust, that should clean. There is also some very small surface rust at the rear of the barrel / ring. The Screw heads are in good serviceable condition showing light use and minor disfiguration. The markings are clear. Overall, this gun rates in about Very Good condition and will improve with some oil and steel wool. The rust has not affected the bore or action.
