got the Japanese sisters today

hello all,
I just traded my 1903A4 for a pair of Japanese Arisakas. a type 99(MUM intact) in it's original 7.7 and a type 44(no mum, sadly) in it's original 6.5x50. both rifles are all parts matching with the exception of a mismatched dust cover on the type44 and a mismatched bayonet for the 99 but over all I think that this was a splendid transaction. the guy I traded with is incredibly knowledgeable and hopefully will love his new Springfield as much as I did while I was restoring her.





out of curiosity were the type 44s marked as 44s or were they marked otherwise? they really ground the heck out of it removing the mum.
