I have a Japanese Arisaka97 sniper rifle from WWII that has rust on the barrel and needs re-blueing.
The barrel and action are over 39 inches long and am looking for people who could properly blue
a barrel this long ( I think it needs to soak in a tank while bluing? ).
Am also looking for a better scope mount. It has a folding/swinging side mount from Pachmayer,
my brother-in-law ( it's his gun) says it loosens up and loses zero at the long ranges that this gun
is capable of. I'm hoping to find a rigid mount that doesnt interfere with the bolt action.
Dont have a scope for it right now ( it's been in storage for a long time, scope probly got used for something
else ) so I will worry on the scope after I find a mount that works, will probly go with a 50mm 20X
zoom with BDC if I can find one like that. Any ideas?
Will be posting this around a bit so dont be suprised to see it on other sites ;-)
pachmeyer supplied scope mounts for jap snipers in WWII?
nice rifle fugly scope mount, Have ya searched for an origional scope mount for it?
The Pachmayer mount came after the war knothead lolol j/k
Done a lot of searching about this rifle but there isnt much to find for the 97 and even some of that is actually for the 98.
My brother-in-law and HIS brothers also "sporterised" the original stock so I will probly make a new one and perhaps the extra long cleaning rod that was originally stored under the barrel.
