    How many times have you seen a Japanese rifle advertised with an "intact mum" and it turns out to be ground, peaned, gouched, or otherwise molested??? The problem is particularly rampant on the auction sites here lately. I've put together this primer to help people correctly identify the state of the mum on any Japanese rifle - check it out!

    Good summary of mums. A friend of mine has been interested in getting an Arisaka - I'll have to forward him your site.
