It's a lot less creepy than the last Forgotten Weapons anime pic I saw, I'll concede that much.

Is that the dangerous explodey Nambu?

Yes. It lives in the safe next to the dangerous explodey Carcano, the never-fired, only-dropped-once Berthier, and the sniper Garand that killed Hitler.

That's a Type 14. You're probably thinking of the Type 94, although it isn't explodey, just ugly as sin.

Suomis aren't side-chargers.

Funnily enough the Soviets made a simplified Suomi copy with that side-charging arrangement, because it was the siege of Leningrad and the prevailing mood was AY BLYAT NEMTSY and they needed guns now, but everything else about that gun is terrible. I especially love the [SA] and serial in a wrong, too-big font and the way the end cap isn't even screwed on right.

Australia made a version of the L1A1 - dunno if the parts kits ever made it to the US though.

Some Lithgow L1A1s made it in, along with some Austen parts and accessories and at least a few Owen kits, I'm pretty sure.

I really hope somone else gets those lovely Spanish mausers Classic has. As an Espanaphile lovely spanish guns are VERY much my thing.

Spanish Mausers are all over Gunbroker. Mostly sporterized M93s and clapped out M1916s, but also the odd M43 or un-bubba'd M93.

FWIW Poland did sell a shitload of guns to the Spanish Republicans, including Mausers and 7.92mm BARs. The story I usually hear is that Poland scrubbed the Wz 29s before shipping them, but
