* Rare Japanese Type 35 Experimental Rifle
7.7mm caliber, 32 barrel, no serial number. Chrysanthemum is intact, no import marks. According to Fred L. Honeycutt, Jr. and F. Patt Anthony, "One variation of the Type 35 rifle has been encountered that appears to have been an original prototype. The arm is composed of Type 30 components on a Type 35 action. The action is obviously a Type 35 experimental as it lacks provisions for a dustcover and does not have a serial number. The action is stamped with the Tokyo Arsenal symbol, and action components are matched by a three digit number located under the receiver. Of particular significance is the lack of a lip at the barrel-receiver interface. The lip was required on Type 35 rifles to retain the special handguard which extended to the receiver location, rather than stopping forward of the rear sight as was done on the Type 30 rifle" (2001: 34)."
