I wanted to share one of my most recent acquisitions: a Japanese Type 11 LMG. This is of course transferable. It has all original finish and is ALL matching, inside and out. I have been looking for one of these for years and I finally have one! This was made in 1941.
There are some interesting notes: the hopper looks like it received a small amount of shrapnel damage (the hopper of course is numbered and original to the gun). I was assured by the seller that it does not inhibit loading or feeding, but I have not tested it out myself yet. Also, there is a weird marking, which I believe *may* be an import mark? It is very lightly struck on the receiver. I can barely make out a name and a city/state. Some city ending in "ville" and a name ending in Sr. I don't know if this was a "property" mark of the guy who brought it back? Or an import mark? But it is not a rewat (at least, not that I can tell) and the manufacturer on the form is "Japan".
Also, there is a screw missing that retains the stock as photoed. If anyone has an idea where I can get a replacement, please let me know. Thanks for looking!
