Never issued! Taken from a crate in a warehouse in Tokyo. Has antiaircraft sights and cleaning rod. May have 20 - 40 rounds fired through it by my father. Finish is very good! Serial # is high 6xxx. I can send digital photos. Fred

Fred, Welcome to the forum! Here are the pictures, I've asked for some more with a little better lighting and higher resolution. Asking Price is $2500, rifle looks pretty nice. Here's a portion of Fred's email:

The story on this rifle is that my father, an officer on an LST, in Tokyo
found crates of these in a warehouse several days after the surrender and
brought it home. It was never issued. As you can see, the mum is intact.

Here are some more pictures, dust cover matches. Nice looking rifle. If I didn't already have a couple, I might be interested.

another board member was interested, seller was going to let me know if previous sale fell through. I haven't heard from him, so I assume we all missed out. Fine looking rifle. Trey

I am the person who purchased to Type 2 Paratroper. I received it last weekend and could not be happier. I have seen people who sell rifles as "unissued" or "mint" Question , but this is the first rifle I have had that is truely mint Very Happy . The blueing on all parts is the dark, full and perfect. The wood has all it's original finish and is a bright orange with clear inspection marks on the stock. Even the screws are still staked. Full mum with matching dust cover. Very happy to have this rifle, now I need a mint sling and bayonet to match the rifle. Anyone have any paratrooper equipment for sale?

Thanks
