    Default Japanese Contract K98k

    I was bidding against these guys on this rifle.
    Once again I hope they get cleaned.

    Lousy cold blue half ass repair to pitted front and rear bands.
    Likely blood oxidation on stock.

    The history on this rifle and in what theater it acquired the blood would be very interesting. Logistically these rifles would have been impractical to feed with the already confusing number of ammunition types the Japanese used. There was little bloodshed on mainland Japan by conventional fighting. Were these issued to troops in island fighting? China?
