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.

Once in a while, something original and unmessed with is still found, like these two from the estate of a recently deceased WW2 sailor, who took them and some swords and a British "Brodie" helmet off a pile in Nagoya in late '45:

The 99 is a bit of a rarity, a transition with the drum-shaped bolt cocking piece but retaining the metal butt plate and adjustable but shorter, Carbine-style rear sight.

Nagoya, apparently a Series 7.

Got a Katana and a very weird cavalry sword that seems to be a German made or inspired contract job.
