    Great rifle!

    I have vet acquired one that was captured in Saipan. Like this one, it has a rubberized leather sling, no dust cover though.

    Curious, what series and arsenal is it?

    Does it still have the anti aircraft sights on her. (that would be the fold out wings on the rear sight itself.) I see she still has the dust cover. Alot of the dust covers were removed because of the rattle it made. Also looks like the chrysanthemum still intact.(chrysanthemum- mum for short) the MUM was supposed to be defaced or removed before surrender. IN order to preserve the Emperors honor. if the mum is still intact . would add add double the value. Anyway nice set up you have. you will have to send a couple down range. as the action on these are very strong . good luck deadeye
