Carcano!
« on: March 20, 2017, 04:04:47 am »
Last night I won an auction for a Carcano carbine.  My WWII collection continues to grow.  What I have so far:

Top to bottom:
Garand
Lee-Enfield No. 4 Mk I
Mauser k98k
Arisaka Type 99
Mosin Nagant 91/30

The Arisaka is the only one I haven't fired.  I don't trust it to be safe.  All the others are for shootin' instead of lookin' at.

If a French MAS 36 finds its way home, that's OK, too.  Updated photo when the new one arrives.

Unless there is something obviously wrong the Arisaka should be just as safe as any other WW II rifle.
is it 6.5 or 7.7 ?

7.7.  I found it at a little gun shop for under $200.  It was missing the spring and follower from the magazine, and the barrel looks like it has been repaired at some point.  I'm okay with it being a wallhanger since ammo for it costs upwards of $3/round and pretty hard to find.

Where is the Official DRTV Photoe Authentication?
If I appear taller than other men it is because I am standing on the shoulders of others.

I'm assuming you gave her the proper protection items concerning flying bacon grease and that pregnant belly

Meant to ask, does it have the Chrysanthemum, or was it ground off at the surrender ?
