Barrel and trigger guard blue remain at 94%, stock finish at 96%, and checkering at 90% with some flattening on the forearm. These early post-war Belgium 10 gauges are infinately better than the Spanish crap that flooded the market in the 60's and 70's. The Neumann is the Cadilac of the Belgium 10 gauges and this one with five Briley screw in chokes and choke tool. Ready for the goose blind or spring turkeys.
