SN: 16401 Ground Chrysanthemum.
Japanese military bolt action rifle features 19" barrel, blade front sight with protector ears, V notch rear sight with flip-up elevator ladder, folding spike bayonet, stacking hook, butt compartment for cleaning rod sections (rod not present), side mounted sling swivels, manual safety, hinged floorplate, dust cover. Bore is good condition, frosted appearance with strong rifling. Retains 85% or better polished re-blue, some signs of waviness from polishing, some observed pitting under the new finish. Bolt is polished, in the white, with blued safety knob. Dust cover has some scattered light patina. Wood is good to very good condition, appears lightly sanded and some finish removed, what appears as original urushi finish in a few protected areas, dents and creases (especially at butt). Butt dovetail is tight. Matching numbers ("401") on dust cover, bolt at stem, safety. Markings are typically readable and even, some appear a bit shallow.
Condition is Very Good as refinished
