Straight out of the woodwork…..This is a MINT TOP CONDITION completely double matched rare early 1943 production Japanese Nagoya Arsenal Type 2 Paratrooper Takedown Rifle. The rifle is matching down to the firing pin. it is double numbered, the rifle serial number 10297 and the takedown assembly number of 162. Of course the Imperial crest is intact, and the chrome lined bore is mint, and as it is early production it has the complete anti-aircraft sight. This is a totally as issued textbook example of the famous and highly collectible Japanese Type 2 Rifle.
This rifle was vet brought back from the Philippines, it was a combat used rifle and was a battlefield pickup. There were several units of Japanese Paratroopers who fought all through out the Philippines campaign and even staged one very notable raid on American Airfields. NO doubt this was pulled off of a very dead one. This is a Top Tier Pacific War Trophy.
