Japanese 7.7 Wood Dummy


Never thought I would see one of these 7.7x58 Rimless dummies, let alone get one for the collection! Very nice lacquered wood with a steel base, exactly as pictured in Ken Elks’ book. My picture isn’t that great, the round is actually a bit lighter and reddish.


John, like this?:

A flash might help.

Jon - I had a .303 similar in construction to this that supposedly came out of Indonesia. Long gone now, of course. I wonder if it was Japanese - the Indonesian connection would certainly NOT rule that out. Anyone know? I am simply curious at this stage.

It was on a standard Japanese 7.7x58 stripper, with a friend or two. I can only refer to Ken Elk’s information.
