Japanese Type 2 Rifle Grenade launcher for the Japanese Type 38 and Type 99 rifles.
Would have posted a pic with it on one of my Type 38 or 99 rifles but don't think my neighbors would be too happy with me taking pictures of them combined outside
Hope to pick up an inert granade in the future for it.
I think approx 50k were made. This is serial #26243.
I've read that the stampings (2 Teki-Dan Ki) read "2 Grenade Implement" or "Type 2 Grenade Launcher."
Not sure what the middle symbol stands for. Any help?
Overall conditions is very good with some minor pitting.
These (I've read once again) are direct copies for the German K98 version.
