    It's had a long, hard life, and has seen some neglect even after the FTR by the rust on the barrel reinforce.

    Is the bolt serial numbered to the action? If electro-pencilled it's probably a...

    The menuki look a bit like one of Hiroshige's waves behind that shell and the fat little fellow might be Hotei, a good luck deity IIRC.
