    If I remember correctly, the toothpaste of choice back then was AIM.

    Here is a website that has a little info on the Jinsen arsenal and such.
    WWII Japanese weapons in the Korean War wwiiafterwwii

    You got a nice one for sure. I have a Jinsen type 99 from late 44 or early 45 having the seconds to last iteration of simplifications. Simple sight and wood buttplate nailed one. The one draw back is my barrel was made remarkably poorly. It looks like a bit was loose causing the bore to have chatter marks every 1.5mm all the way down the barrel. With Arisakas the earlier the better.
