In the past four or five years I've seen both a 30 rifle and carbine that had about 60-70% of the original color, should have bought them, but didn't, old story. As I remember, the finish was like the early Nagoya "yellow," but with a tinge of red. Can anyone confirm or give me a more accurate description? I plan to go to the trouble expense to have one of my 30 carbines restored (yes, I know, but it's my carbine so as the old song goes, "I don't care what Mama don't allow, I'll play my guitar anyhow!") There are very few 30's around that have not either been finished once or more or have had the original finish worn off.
