Fine. Retains most of the Parkerized finish with some thinning and wear. Clear markings in metal and wood. Mechanically functional, very good bore is mostly bright with some oxidation closer to the muzzle that might clean out. Wood fairly crips with some light wear and some scattered bumps and dings.

Estimate: $2,000 - $3,000
