Very good. Bore is bright and rifling is good, no visible evidence of pitting or oxidation. There are some light scratches to barrel overall but few defects otherwise. Stock has some damaged areas near toe of butt, and toward front of forearm, with some minor scratches and dings overall. Scope is clear, but has some slight blurring near crosshairs. Sling and pouch are in good condition.
