Thank you all for contributing to the answer! I do appreciate it.
So tell me, would it be a bad thing if i shot these rifles? They have beautiful etch work, custom stocks but I REALLY want to put some rounds through them! Don't get me wrong, I will clean them extensively before I do so since they need it, then maintain them.. I never understood how someone can put a rifle/handgun away without cleaning it? Guess that is just one of my pet peavs?
And, on the Arisaka with the pinhole sight, I believe the sight needs to be oiled/re-worked since the elevation will not go up and down, you have to loosen the thumb screw on the front then adjust with the one on top but it does not want to move freely (to much friction) would you guys recommend taking it to a gunsmith to get re-worked? Are there any Gunsmiths that you guys would recommend me taking it to that are trustworthy around Riverside County, CA?
