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 ;-)

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.
