You mean it's not a sniper rifle? I'VE BEEN CHEATED!?Think the bidders bought what the seller wrote, that it was a "Sniper Rifle" reconfigured by the Japanese, brought back from Tinian.
You still need to make that dust cover scope mount...Just wait until I post my Type 4 paratrooper take-down sniper carbine (made from a butchered Type 2) with the story it was designed for the "little people" paratroopers. You could get more on a plane than normal size guy and once they hit the ground and got in the trees the skinny one's could hide as limbs and the fat ones as hornet's nests. The only problem was they were so small/light that on the first jump they all went up instead of down and were never seen again. I have the only one left, the prototype.
I'd bet you the Mutts new JB whatever that I'd get bids several hundred dollars higher than the total of the value of the carbine/scope parts just because of the story. It's like Patrick Henry said, "A fool's born every minute." Not Patrick Henry, were you there?
