Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

Re: Last ditch?

Yes, that is a series 8 Nagoya built Type 99. It looks to be in very good shape. I highly doubt it was a school rifle, school rifles were usually old beat up Type 38 rifles. This one would have been probably stock pulled for the impending inavasion of the home islands. Not sure what the characters a...

Re: M38 Carbine

I don't think that's and M-38, it looks like it's an AK😉. Must be an early proto type!

It should clean up pretty nice, no SA stamp either!

My only drawback to these is mine has an atrocious trigger pull.

I would agree. I added this one as an example as a Russian side arm. Eventually I'd like to add an original war time TT-33. I still have not had a chance to shoot this one, she we'll have to see.

Show us your mid-late war Nagoya Type 99's

I was talking to a Type 99 collector about how I find the mid to late war expeediences interesting and how they transfor through the series beginning around series 5. I thought maybe a data base would be a fun and interesting project. Photos would be great but if you can include: -The series 5-8 - S...

Re: Adventures in Blueing

I've been doing something like this for a few years. Ow with great success. I've had the best results with the birch wood Casey bluing pen and lately with Dicropan 4 from Brownells. The only variation I use is that I let the parts sit and rust a bit, then boil and oil.

Re: Short Arisaka

Nice carbine, that is a feature and all Type 38 rifles, I beieve it was a channel to allow water and other foreign objects to drain from underneath the action. Much like early Type 99's having Adrian hole under the receiver.

Operation Barbarossa - 76 years ago today

76 years ago today operation Barbarossa began, the most apocoliptic land battle the world has ever seen. This epic event pitted members from my family against one another. I decided to commemorate it in photograph. Below is my Kar98k which is a Byf 41 and Mosin M38 (it's a 1942 production, but the y...

Re: Gun Safe

I use non slip tool box linner or drawer liner. Not the cheap perforated stuff but the solid mat material. No problem with rust, oil absurbtion or other detrimental effects.

Re: M1917 or SMLE?

I like the idea of saving a sported M1917, but beware a stock and then all the other missing parts will get expensive. I owned a M1917, it was a good shooter but found it just heavy and overly bulky, I parted ways with it. I miss it in my collection, but love my 1943 Lithgow far more. Nothing compar...

Re: Dirty old Westinghouse.

Great looking rifle, well worth the wait. My M38 came in a post war M44 stock, I had always wanted an original M38 stock for it. About 4 years after I bought it I was searching eBay and there it was one, marked as an M44 stock and priced very reasonably. Some how it makes a difference and was worth ...
