Re: Japanese WWII Rifle
Does it have a "duffel-bag cut"? Pull that forward sling-swivel band off, and see if the stock is cut under there. GIs smuggling rifles home would have to cut the stock in two, as it was too long to fit in their duffel bags. They would cut it under the forward band, so that when they put the gun back together, the band would hide the cut.
