A friend asked me to clean up her grandfather's rifle that she says he brought back from Iwo Jima. I know war stories and all, but I am inclined to bite on this one - mainly because she isn't selling it and doesn't really have any knowledge of firearms - it also looks like a bring back to me. It was missing a couple of small parts and looked like it had spent most of the last forty years in the back of a closet. That said, it cleaned up nice. For those interested, it's a 25th Series Kokura Type 99. I'm not sure I got the sling on correctly, and I didn't attempt to clean it. It's full of reddish dust.
