I recently googled "Mukden" and received "Shenyang - Wikipedia". Since using Peking instead of Beijing is no longer considered proper, isn't it time we called "Mukden" Shenyang as well? It seems that the old books on Japanese designed rifles are rife with old offensive colonial terms. It is time they were updated. I believe I've heard of Shenyang Mausers as well. It's not like this name isn't used already concerning other rifles made in the same city. The Japanese arsenal was merely located in a suburb of Shenyang.

Best Regards,

Mark
