    Looks good, at least the receiver is intact. Maybe you could find the dust cover and bi-pod from someone here? Looks good, what's the bore like? Probably as good as the rest...

    If you show the maker and series markings on the left side of the receiver it would help with id . I do not think getting a mono-pod for that rifle would work as it looks like it does not have a pod band on it . A good id of the rifle would help to know what parts are missing if any . It may have also never had a dust cover either . Without better photos it is hard to tell , but the stock looks to have been messed with also .

    The slot was on many rifles that did not have dust covers . The dust cover was the first " extra " part to de dropped . The slot was still found on most rifles until the very end , even though the dust cover had been gone for years .

    Not quite. It was actually the monopod.

    Look at the Nagoya 5th series. By the 5th series the monopod was removed from production, with old bands that accepted a pod being used into the late 5th and early 6th series. The dust cover wasn't removed until late in the 5th series. This is similar in other arsenals too, including Kokura and Toyo Kogyo.

    It does depend upon the maker . Using my collection of over 30 years [ most rifle picked up long before they were worth any money , so people were not putting the wrong parts on them ] , that has about every maker , every series and every 10,000 block [ more of Nagoya as they were more varied ] . I see the cover going away first . I am counting rifles were you can see pod marks [ even if it is no longer there ] and rifles showing no marks at all from the covers . I have a N-5 60k with a pod , some N-5's that are earlier with no pod . I have no Nags later than the 50k that show cover . But that is what made the Nagoya's interesting , parts would come and go and come back in a series . The Kokura's were a little more standard . I have a pod on a K-24 at 40 k , but have no rifles about K-23 90 k showing a pod . With Toyo kogyo's I have a pod at TK-32 50k but a cover on a TK-32 at 60k . I have a late pod band [ only ] on a N-8 that looks like it was made that way . I know when you started collecting and most of what you have . You have got some nice rifles but have a long way to go .
