    Default Japanese inspected Standard-Modell

    Got really lucky on this one and thanks to the auction house for not posting close up images of the Japanese technical inspection stamp.
    This is only third documented one found, and the serial number list is very short:

    70186
    70209
    72075

    My opinion is that most of the new Standard-Modells found in the 65xxx to 75xxx serial number range are Pacific theater bringbacks.
    These very few went through a secondary inspection and bear the small acceptance stamp located just rear of the rear lower sling swivel.

    For more background on these rifles, refer to Volume I, pages 163-164 and in the Appendix section A10.

    Default Standard Modells for Japan

    Andrew, I have to contact Dr. Libby in Maine regarding these rifles.
    We will be publishing new information most of which were supplied by Ken Tomonari in Japan.
    I had emailed him regarding the Kanji acceptance stamp and damn if he didnt find some original
    Japanese military documents regarding acceptance of "Mauser" rifles.

    I am hoping that Dr. Libby can translate the Japanese Imperial Army documents and will give
    us new insight into the acceptance and inspection of the the group of Mauser system rifles
    that the Japanese military acquired - these being the VZ24, K98k, and Standard Modell.

    Bruce, be careful when you handle that rifle. You could cut your fingers on those grasping grooves! Beautiful piece.
