    I recently acquired a Japanese cartridge collection and received a couple items I am looking for more info on. These 5 rounds of British (Kynoch) manufactured 6.5mm were on this “.256 I Hinks.Wells co” stripper clip. I am curious to know the rarity of this stripper clip, I have never seen one...

    New to this area of the boards and was hoping someone might be able to help me out with what might be a 'fair' price for a type 44 (mid range, non-safe queen, functioning, shooter). I'm looking to add one to my 'carbines with attached bayonets' collection but honestly, I know nothing of the...

    I’m looking to purchase rare and obscure Japanese cartridges, ammo boxes, ammo strips etc. Mainly looking for Japanese manufactured military ammo from late 1800’s to WW2. If you have something out of the ordinary you are looking to sell and pass on to a new collector, please let me know!

    I have this rubberized canvas sling that came attached to one of my Type 99 rifles when I purchased it. My question to you all is if this sling appears to be original, and why or why not? It seems to have some sort of writing in white paint on it, but this is mostly worn off There are three...

    I picked this no series Nagoya Arsenal Type up pretty cheap because of condition. Mum in tact. I have never seen this golden color on all of the exposed bluing before. Does not look like it has been scrubbed to death and the bluing appears normal below the wood line. I used some acetone on...

    My Dad had these two swords from WWII time frame. There is no info on the tang of the NCO(/)short sword. He may or may not have taken this off a Japanese prisoner. The other appears to be some sort of prayer sword. We are downsizing and my son has no interest in them, so I will be looking to...

    I'm not sure if this is a genuine IJA Type 3 mine and fuse with tag in Japanese, or from a US Engineers' Japanese Mine Training Set, #2 (a photo of my set is attached fyi, but not for sale; the Type 3 is the large center one). Approx 11 1/2" diameter, 3 1/2" high. It is empty of any explosive...

    I recently purchased a Type 38 that has a monopod on it. It's my understanding that Type 38 rifles weren't issued with monopods so I went through my books and it appears to be a Type 97 monopod. It doesn't look like a repro but I'm just curious to know if its an original or not. Can't find any...

    Recently won this Japanese good luck flag on ebay. I have a feeling that it may be a fake but since I only paid 60 bucks shipped for it its ok if it is. Upon my inspection, the flag itself appears authentic but the kanji and temple stamp appear different from my other authentic good luck flag. I...
