I was able to see three nice T 97 snipers, two Kokura and one Nagoya. All three were in nice shape for a change!

1- Kokura 4256, mum defaced with two file lines, had a 1st series Nagoya scope #5833. Scope was not so nice, finish was only fair, couldn't make out the mfg. symbol, but the number was 15633, of course in 2.5x. Rifle was claimed matching, though I couldn't verify.

2- Kokura 7127, very nice matching verified rifle, with full mum. No scope.

3- Nagoya first series 2291, nice rifle but scope base had been removed and discarded. Mum defaced with two file marks; rifle in very nice conditon except for that!

Hello 03man :

Thank you for the sniper report. Got a question, on Nov. 2011 you reported seeing at Nashville :
a) T- 97 scope Shibaura No. 15635 for rifle 5835 ( unknown if issue number was for Nag. of Kok. rifle ) along with 97 Nagoya rifle # 4236.
Now on your # 1 report from the SOS is :
b) T-97 Shibaura scope No. 15633 for rifle 1st. 5833, with Kokura 97 rifle # 4256 .
Due to the scope finish condition I can see how it could be mistaken 15635 and 15633 and 5835 and 5833 and it be the same scope. Could the rifle be mistaken also ? 97 Nagoya 4236 and Kokura 97 4256 ?.
Please recheck your notes.

4256 is definitely a Kokura rifle; kinda' hard to mix up cannon balls and fish heads!

Scope was no 15633 couldn't see the maker, numbered to nagoya first series 5833.

Definitely not the same rifle or the same scope as seen in TN.
