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.

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.

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 ...
