    Have you test fired it yet?

    An interesting relic. Where was it found?

    I agree with zwerge thoughts of it being a type 38. The stock end cap looks like it a type 38's Semper Fi. Phil

    I like it. A great relic. There were a few WW1 Lee Enfield’s for sale on eBay but they disappeared pretty quickly. I have a nice relic nose cap from the Western Front in my collection.

    I’ve always thought it was a 99, it was found at Henderson field airstrip on Guadalcanal. I guess you might say that it had one previous careless owner of the IJA.

    That had to be a fantastic relic hunt to be on Henderson field. Any pic's of that trip that you would mind sharing?
    I would be very interested to see what it looks like now.

    I would guess that it could be from the banzai attack....instead of a "careless" owner.

    Stuff decays rapidly in the tropics. I remember a library book I once borrowed in the early 1970s' called "Pacific Battlefields" or something similar. What I mainly remember was the photographs of war relics and the substantial corrosion after less than 30 years.
