I've seen tons of English-language reading material on the Arisaka series, but practically nothing on the Muratas beyond some brief online articles that give a general overview. Are there any good reference books on Murata rifles that someone could recommend?

The only book that I know of is "Japanese Murata Rifles 1880-1897" by Stanly Zielinski. It was a Banzai Special Project Number 10.

Don't believe so. Look on BANZAI and there is a link to contract Stanly Zielinski. Not sure if he has any copies left after all these years.

Military Rifles of Japan is still readily available and has good information on the Murata rifles. Bolt Action Military Rifles of the World also has brief information on them.
I own 'Bolt Action Military Rifles of the World' already, but don't have the other. Will take a look online to see what it's going for...

Miko.H, did you get Dr. Zielinski’s contact info? If not, I can PM you his email if you need it. I bought a Murata book from him 3 yrs ago, and I believe he said he still had a few more at the time.

No, at the moment I only have a work laptop and the Banzai website was blocked by my network, so I couldn't access it to find his contact info. If you could PM it to me that'd be much appreciated, thanks.
