I posted another one of my famous signs at the local gun club that I am a member of. Almost immediately, a fellow member said he had some stuff to show me. He drove home quick, and came back with these:
I believe it to be a Nagoya Arsenal 2nd Series (little square inside a circle)Type 99 short rifle, chambered in 7.7x58mm. I also believe that it has been BUBBA'd, but at least Bubba did the job with some skill.... I noticed that the last three numbers on the bolt (606) DO NOT match the serial number on the receiver (96003). It is also completely missing the chrysanthemum, and the bolt has been turned down. Finally, I believe the stock has a received a coat of shiny shellac.
This knife is a mystery. It is marked U.S. Mod. 1917 on one side of the blade, and Plumb. Phila. 1918 on the other side...
This one is a bit of a mystery, I believe it to be an SA dagger in rough shape... The blade is marked "F. Dick" with the picture of an arrow inside what kind of looks like a scroll.
Finally, this is a USM3 knife made by Imperial. The scabbard/ frog combo is marked MILSCO 1943
Can anyone add any info and or/ shed any light on the objects that are a bit of a mystery to me?
