I must give you extra credit for your Doc Holiday quote. I'm not really a Kilmer fan myself but there really hasn't been a DH that's measured up since.
Def. Kilmers BEST role! He nailed it! Heck all of the characters were jam up IMHO. If that movie is on TV I'm watchin it! But back to your post. I'm researching Arisaka's now, cause I don't know squat about them. I've seen them at gun shows in the past. But all the ones I've seen looked like they came from the bottom of the pacific.
