I have Japanese 7.7 Arasaka in new & unfired condition . Has the Mum & dust cover, chrome lined bore. My wife's uncle was the XO on LST 973 when WWII ended. The T docked at an island formerly Japanese occupied to meet with the Governor. After the meeting, the Gov. Escorted the Co and XO back to the ship. As they walked down the pier, the Gov. asked if they needed anything. Uncle told the Gov. that he'd like to have a Japanese weapon. The Gov. walked over to a pier sentry and took his rifle & and gave it to wife's uncle.
