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.

Rifle needs identification please

#1 Post by MVPD16 » Sun Aug 05, 2018 11:57 am

Hello everyone, thanks for accepting me to The Forum and it seems to be a very knowledgeable one at that! I have these two rifles which I believe or Japanese that I will be posting, one here and then I will create a different post for the other one. There's probably nothing special about this rifle but I'd like to know about its origin and history. It may not be worth very much but it's fun to hold a piece of History in your hand. Any information you are able to provide would be greatly appreciated, thanks in advance.
