Japanese WWII Type 2 Paratrooper Take Down Resin Display Rifle
New Made item: The Japanese Arisaka Type 2 (1942) take-down rifle was an innovative design intended for use by paratroopers. It incorporated a simple but very strong joint between the barrel and the receiver, allowing the rifle to be broken down into two short sections. This makes the overall size of the package very convenient. Aside from the take-down feature, the rifle is identical to the Type 99 short rifle.
The Type 2 has become one of the most desirable items of Japanese WW2 militaria, examples selling for as much as $2000. IMA’s resin version is an accurate reproduction of the Type 2, even providing the take-down capability. In addition, steel sling swivels allow the attachment of our replica Type 99 sling (Item #AMU1008), and the rear sight leaf may be used in the vertical or horizontal position.
Our solid resin non-firing display gun is nothing short of stunning. It really does look like the real thing from just a few feet away. It was cast from a silicon mold of an original Arisaka 99 Type 2 in the IMA collection and therefore is not only an accurate 1:1 scale but has all the details of the real thing. It has been expertly air brushed to provide the cold glimmering look of steel and the warm richness of a mahogany wood stock.
For added authenticity we have used steel sling attachments (fully secure) to allow you to correctly use a leather Type 99 sling, we added a metal wire frame that runs through most of the more delicate areas of the gun. We used a steel locking socket assembly and steel securing bolt in order for you to actually take down or fold the gun just like WWII Japanese paratroopers! Not only does it look good but it also feels good as this gun weighs a hearty 8 lbs.
This is it, finally an affordable, safe, robust, quality display alternative to spending many thousands of dollars on a liability laden display gun. Perfect for gun enthusiasts, as a prop firearm for theatrical and film productions or one amazing childhood toy for epic war games.
