Condition: Excellent. The rifle retains over 98% original black anodized finish with some minor muzzle wear and some scattered minor edge wear/flaking. The stock is excellent with a few minor pressure dents and a few mild dings. The scope retains 99% of the matte black finish with a few mild scratches. This is an exceptional example of a totally correct, no apologies, FN 49 sniper rifle.
