How many are still out there?
Just out of curiosity I was wondering how many Arisakas still survive today? What is the most common type to run across? I'm curious about the possible number of all Arisakas, T44's, T38's, T97's, T99's, T99 snipers, ect. I know that this is an impossible question to answer since so many were destroyed in battle, just plain lost, and after the surrender were destroyed and thrown into the ocean. I'm just looking for educated guesses as to what you who know much more than I on the subject may think. Thanks in advance for any input, its greatly appreciated .
