Took the kids shooting this weekend, we shot a little bit of this, a little bit of that...Nothing is as it seems, if you can name the models/types and calibers, I'll buy you a cool refreshing beverage at the shootout, you'll have to go get it yourself though....


Bonus points if you can ID the series'.

That's it, both Arisaka's have been converted to .410....Makes for interesting shooting. Riceone replaced the barrel on the 99 with a .410 barrel....I noticed the Type 38 late on a Sunday at a show. Its matching, mummed, sporterized, and the original barrel bored out and rechambered to .410. I'm contemplating refitting it to a more 'original' appearance....

For some reason I thought you already had one....I think the 'Destroyer' carbine with trench mag would make a awesome 'riot gun'....

I messed up at the last gun show, knew it a day after I was there, one of the guys had .410 brass rounds for really reasonable,and I had my head up my arse and didnt grab some,knew I wanted them for some reason,and spaced off why, I think they'd be slick as sh*t in those conversion guns, I wanted some for my enfield and your arisaka's now i gotta try and find the guy again next show.

I've have heard for years of folks converting the Type-99 over to a 410 and never seen one much less owned one yet. That could a project for the next beater I find.
