    Regarding the "shadow" near the rear band spring. I agree with the guess that maybe the band was not fully seated for awhile.
    (maybe when it was disasembled for bring home?)

    Years ago, I bought a really nice Japanese T99 rifle directly from the vet.
    I spoke with him for a bit while purchasing it. He had disassembled his rifle to bring home then reassembled it and put it a closet where it sat until 2008 when I bought it. (never shot it because there was no ammo)
    The rear barrel band had been put on turned backward in 1946 and sat that way until 2008. I put it on correctly, but there is a very distinct "shadow" on the stock and top handguard as a result.
