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: New T94

Hi indy1919a4, It's a small pistol, but it fits comfortably in my hand. If it were much smaller, though, it wouldn't. It's easy to quickly point and aim, though the sights aren't that great. These pistols were popular with officers, airmen, tank crews, and anyone who worked in tight quarters. It def...

New T94

Hi Everyone, I picked up this all-matching T94 Nambu with one matching mag a couple of months ago. Also, it's holster is numbered to match the pistol, and it has the Japanese vet's name written inside the lid, "Makoto Tanabe." I was able to add a correct, original lanyard, an original shoulder strap...

Re: Short Arisaka

That's a great-looking carbine, with nice bluing as far as I can tell.
Does the dust cover match? A three-digit number that should match the last three digits of the serial number should be on the trailing edge of the cover.
Again, you have a very nice piece.

Probably two-screw front band. The nose cap is drilled for a cleaning rod, however the stock is not dri...

Re: Sporterized

It's very most likely a series eleven. Dust cover grooves were eliminated late in the series, and this one certainly is late in the series! (If it were a series twelve I'd vomit...Bubba finds the good ones. ;) )

Re: 27th Series Tokyo Juki Kogyo Type 99 w/ Rope Hole stock

Hi PennsylvaniaRifleman, Thank you, it's good to be back; I'm glad to see the site has returned. Many friendly, knowledgeable people here like yourself. Now if I can figure out how to post photos...never had trouble here before. Maybe my Arisaka-itis is affecting my brain. Ithilsdorf, I agree. The l...

Re: 27th Series Tokyo Juki Kogyo Type 99 w/ Rope Hole stock

Hi Ithilsdorf, I just discovered S.R.F. was up- and- running again. Yours is very late example to still have the dust cover grooves. My rope-hole TJK is in the very, very late 37000 serial number range and it doesn't have dust cover grooves, but it still retains the front sling swivel. There are so ...
