Very Good as refurbished. Parkerized bolt with the metal retaining much of the period reapplied Parkerizing, showing thinning, wear and loss along high edges and contact points. Markings mostly crisp and clear in metal, weaker in wood. Mechanically functional, fine bright bore with some frosting and crisp rifling.
