    finally got some pictures of my grandpa's WW2 bring back gun. its a japanese gun, thats all i know. any info on the markings(officer, or whatever) and value would be appreciated. and before anyone asks, no its not for sale. pictures are LARGE so you can zoom in to see clear enough.

    also, there is a picture of a cool 3 barrel gun. dad says its from germany somewhere. top two are shotgun barrels, bottom is some rifle caliber.

    markings look intact, depending on bore it should be worth atleast a couple hundred bucks.

    the chrysanthemum is the symbol of the japanese emperor.

    most of the rifles surrendered during the war had them scratched off/removed as not to disgrase the emporor, who was regarded as a god.

    a quick google search yielded this:

    so this would add to the value then vs one that has it scratched off?

    For one that is in excellent condition. And, there may be a $7900 selling price, but how many people would really pay that?

    weird how the japanese rifle has Japanese letters on the reciever, but the numbers on the sight block seem normal...

    My dad had 4 of them. One even had the AA monopod on it. He just sold them however. I cant remember what the going price was, but Im sure it was pretty high
