To me battle damage would only add value is there was some history attached to it.

Dare I venture a guess as to what sort of "special" you are refering to? ;)


I think most collectors dig the damaged pieces, but who wants to pay a premium for one? It will just encourage some dickus to burn and shoot up japanese rifles (hell he may even use proper headstamped US ammo) to turn a quick buck on the less experienced and deer in the headlight types with some strange fantasy story
Probably "special" as in nuts! ;)
Anyone can shoot, burn or mutilate a rifle at anytime, that's why I mentioned the historical connection. My only battle damaged example is my Guam pickup 31st series.

I'll have an early 7th in my next sale. You wouldn't be interested though, it's mint except for being ground.
Still, you could buy it then shoot it a couple of times & drop it into the campfire and have your "battle damage"
