Picked up this Murata T13 at the gun show last week. It's missing a bunch of parts: about 1/2 the bolt assembly, the rear sight, and middle band. This is one that has been converted to a shotgun as well. Curious thing is that it does not appear to have the Imperial Mum, or the markings on the left side like on other pictures I've seen.

Does anyone know if this was a civilian gun from the start? Can anyone tell me anything about it in general?

I've read that Murata rifles converted to shotguns were supplied to Japanese who went to live in a colony in Brazil.
Whether these were gifts from the Japanese government or sold commercialy was not made clear.
