Hi All I am a bit of a newbie in terms of collecting! Started out about 3 years ago with a Springfield M1903A3 , which i have swapped for the Arisaka pictured :) I have a little collection based upon the early days of the Pacific campaign between the USMC and the IJA in places such as Guadalcanal or Tulagi I have items from both sides. I cannot guarantee if these weapons were used in the pacific , but they do portray examples of the kind that would have been seen All guns are Deactivated to UK specifications Starting from the Top! An Unknown make M1 Bayonet that i intend to get rid of , (I have ordered a Genuine M1942 by Utica that will replace this) A Replica MK2 Pineapple Grenade (tempted to give this a yellow coating so it matches the earlier grenades used in Guadalcanal. A 1942 Dated M1903 Springfield by Remington Its Serial number is 3194470 which dates the receiver to August 1942. The Barrel is dated 7 - 42 so a month before the receiver. This adds up as many barrels were produced a month before being fitted to a receiver and stock.
