    Back years ago in NC, a friend showed me a rifle he had, it was a Japanese type I. I was not a collector or knowledgeable then. It was obviously Japanese but had the Italian features and markings. We were baffled by this multinational rifle at the time but now I know about them. NIce looking ensemble of bringbacks!

    Hi Bill,

    That is probably the nicest one of those I have ever seen. They are not too common and finding one in that shape is quite unusual!

    I've seen some nice ones in my day but nothing as nice as that rifle, sling and bayonet.
