It has a spring loaded firing mechanism with a release trigger that is slightly bent and sticks. Embossed to the underside of the tow end of the gun carriage is "Japan". It retains about 80% of its original paint with chips to the edges of the carriage and one of the tires has a small piece broken from it.
