Weapons Of World War II: Japanese Type 100 Paratrooper Rifle

The Japanese Type 100 Paratrooper Rifle was just the weapon for jumping out of airplanes. 

This World War Two military rifle disassembled into two pieces for easy transport.

Ian from Forgotten Weapons tells us all about the Japanese Type 100 Paratrooper Rifle.

A Japanese paratrooper of World War II was at times armed with quite an interesting weapon.

The Japanese Type 100 Paratrooper Rifle was a rifle that had many full-sized military rifle accessories. What it did that the larger rifles could not do is easily break down into two pieces that can be assembled very quickly.

This take down rifle would come quite in handy for anyone who wanted an easy to transport bolt action rifle. The idea of take down bolt action rifles though mostly ended with World War Two for military arms development.
