Which ones Schuyler,

the laminated one's (third photo, 3rd and 4th from the left)? My personal favorite is the 2nd from the left, it was manufactured in 1938 and I count two dings on the whole rifle, straight as an arrow and the cheapest one of the bunch.....The irony.....

Yes Lyle,

the 7.7X58 ammo is spendy so I don't plan to shoot it much but this is what was shooting at our boys on Iwojima, a must have for my collection.

Actually sam,

it is interesting, the Arisaka's action is damn near identical to the Mauser in many ways, I will take some detailed photos tomorrow. Considering the time, I guess that's not real strange, the Germans and the Jap's were definitely communicating in the late 30's and early 40's....History is fun, if not expensive....lol!

isn't one of those 91/30's suppose to have a bent bolt and a scope, or is it still on the way? You have a mighty fine start to a collection. Keep em coming. oh, yeah, how's the mum on that Arisaka? Do you notice it?

on the 91/30 sniper, maybe if the price stays reasonable, ya just never know! I bought two 91/30's for good measure along with my M-44, I would like am M-38 but they are un-obtainium , I will keep looking!

M38

really? I look around tomorrow. When I picked both of mine up there were just as many of them as the 44's. The regular 91/30's are the most plentiful though. I hope you get that sniper, those are just plain cool, and with the svd...

that is the 'cat's ass' as far as I am concerned. I also have two cases of 'Tannerite' coming so that ought to be a good combination, ROMAK3 and Tannerite at a couple hundred meters!
