    Well, I got myself another rifle... I'd addicted, I know lol. It's an Arisaka Type 99 Series 23 Kokura. All matching numbers with intact chrysanthemum, dust cover, monopod, and AA sights. It's a beautiful rifle!

    Excellent find. I am an avid Arisaka collector but they are fairly hard to find in Canada.

    I'm sure... Hard to find one with an intact mum anywhere really.

    That's an impressive piece.

    I have to ask. Did you take those photos? That's a magazine worthy photo spread.

    Thanks! And yes I did! With my cell phone lol. I just used some white canvas material I have and draped it over a box. Thought the white would bring out the details nicely. I'll have to do the same with my other guns.
