6.5mm SN: 4220 'Fifth Series' Intact Mum. Very rare experimental Japanese military rifle, estimated only 200 manufactured. Based on a modified T-38 carbine, features 19" barrel, blade front sight with protector ears, V notch rear sight with flip-up elevator ladder, cleaning rod, bayonet lug, side mounted sling swivels, manual safety, detachable floorplate, sliding dust cover over action, hinge mechanism at wrist to allow folding to smaller size. Bore is good to very good condition, bright with even light frosting, strong rifling. Barrel, sights & action retain 80% blue, some bare metal at edges, where dust cover rubs, where bayonet was mounted. Dust cover retains 80% blue, shows a slightly brown color, very good condition. Bottom metal, bands, and hinge have thin, slightly brown colored finish. Wood is very good condition overall with slight dings & dents, shallow gouges around wrist, original finish removed with little evidence of sanding. Hinge parts on butt are a bit loose to the wood, allowing slight movement, with several short cracks around attachment points. Butt join is snug. Letter "H" scraped into right side of butt, a second letter too shallow to read. Stamped markings in metal are deep and crisp. No importer marks observed. Marked "X220" on upper & lower tang. Missing one wood screw from forward part of stock hinge. Condition is NRA Good++ *** C&R Firearm ***
