    Nice one Bill. Never knew about these. Assume they are rare as hens teeth

    "Please", Thank You" and proper manners appreciated

    My greatest fear is that one day I will die and my wife will sell my guns for what I told her I paid for them

    Some additional information on the Japanese VZ-24 Rifle. It was picked up on Okinawa by a USMC officer and brought to the USA as a war souvenir..BILL

    I was hoping I would't be the only one ignorant to the existance of these rifles. Very interesting and very cool Bill. 25 years of gun shows and it's a first for me.
    We have met the enemy and have learned nothing more about him. I have, however, learned some things about myself. There are things men can do to one another that are sobering to the soul. It is one thing to reconcile these things with God, but another to square it with yourself. - Robert Leckie

    Were they captured from the Nationalist Chinese and reissued like so many other types that ended up in Japanese hands?
