    Some highlights of my Japanese collection:

    Type 99 - oddball - 27th series - a "last ditch" (technical a substitute standard) - but this series used a lot of earlier stocks inletted for the original bands, etc.

    Mum intact:

    An "02-45" - this was a last ditch rifle cobbled together from old Type 35 and Type 30 receivers, 6.5mm barrels, and trainer stocks... this is one of the nicest I've seen:

    Type 99 - Series 34 - Another "last ditch"

    Early Type 99 with all the bells and whistles - defaced mum:

    Nice Arisakas! Great to find them with mums still intact. A friend of mine bought an Arisaka bayonet & has been looking to get a rifle to match (I think it normally works the other way around, but who's going to be picky).

    Good point... although if they hadn't gotten rowdy... and we hadn't beaten them... I wouldn't have the collection... Honeslty my favorite is still the one with its shipping crate as that really ties it to a veteran who fought in WW2
