    I now own a 7.7 JAP. I don't know much about this WWII rifle other than it was hard to find a case up here longer than 44 inches. I have my own little collection going

    Anyone know anything about the 7.7 Jap?

    Who says a woman can't shoot? How do I protect my home without my Rifles, Shotguns and Pistols??

    AK-47. Everyone needs a fighting rifle.

        Can't go wrong with an AK-47.

          Technically you really can't go wrong with a AK or a Shotgun!! (SAIGA 12)

            I did vote AK, then I saw what you did to it.

            Amazingly enough AK's work extremely well without additions from the Airsoft Catalog.

              Anyone know anything about the 7.7 Jap?

              Did a search and came up with this info from "The Reload Bench" http://www.reloadbench.com/cartridges/77j.html

              The 7.7 x 58mm Japanese enjoyed mild popularity among American hunters after World War II, when surplus military rifles were imported to the U.S. The cartridge was adopted by the Japanese military in 1939 in the Model99 Arisaka rifle as a replacement for the older 6.5mm cartridge but both remained in service during World War II. Norma ammunition loaded with soft nose bullets is presently available

              Some handloaders form 7.7 cases from .30-06 cases, but since the latter has a slightly smaller base diameter the best bet is to buy Norma ammunition and reload those cases. Ballistically, the 7.7 falls between the .300 Savage and .308 Winchester. Bullets of .311" diameter (same as the .303 British) are available from Hornady, Sierra, and Speer. A 150 grain spitzer pushed to 2500 fps with H414, H335, or H4895 is a good choice for deer size game at close to medium ranges.

                I fired a real nice AK when I was in Afghanstan from one of the Persmirian (SP?) guards that took us around and that thing was beautiful and fired so smooth and accurate. These knock offs and Super AKs I will pass on and try to get a nice stock one. The 228 and Saiga I think are your best assets right now.
                Hoping to get picked up when I return from Iraq
