DC is un-numbered but not a repro. No tab on the inside. Very odd. Paid 2K, considering the condition I thought it was worth it.

Nice rifle! These are hard to find or even see in collections.
Mine is a centerpiece of my collection. I tore down a barn [three days] to get my Type 2. Does any history come with it? There are also the joint-assembly numbers. I used to think they were the rack number.... but have since read no one but the Japanese paratroops knew what they were for.

Now you have to find the sling and bayonet!!

NICE!

That is a beautiful rifle ! LOL Bayonet? Yeah, almost as much as the rifle! LOL I got a bayonet a number of years ago...Not a real one, one someone cut down and made into a parabayo...Then again, it didn't cost as much either! :)

These are not hard to find - just expensive. I can't recall when there hasn't been one or more on the auction sites at any given time.
The "joint assembly numbers" were just that. You should read better books concerning these rifles ;)

Nice rifle Ike!
