Re: Japanese Rifle
It is an Arisaka. A clearer pic of the receiver by the mum will give the type#. It started out most likely as a 7.7Jap caliber, but you'd have to verify the chamber to know for sure. Not much collectors value since it's been sporterized, but should be a good hunting rifle and still worth $100-115 IMO. How's the muzzle end look?
It appears to be an earlier model. If you could post the serial number, I'm having a problem making it out clearly.
