I have a 7mm rifle that was one of my fathers, and I'm looking for some information on it. He passed away recently, and we were never able to shoot it together. I believe he brought it back from WWII, and sporterized it himself. (Did a lot of work himself actually)
(Some Japanese characters, perhaps an armory stamp?)
what appears to be a chrysanthemum logo
Id like to shoot it, and am looking for anyone who might be familiar with its operational details. Some of it is fairly straightforward, bolt, magazine, but some of it is a little odd. There is a spring loaded 'cap' on the rear of the bolt, that I believe is a safety, but wouldn't bet my foot on it. Also, is this 7x57 ? Any limits or recommendations on loads? Any help is greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance
