    PS, every book on the Arisaka says it IS a "Mauser" derivative...probably the magazine and bolt head I would guess...


    But I've always liked the Arisaka nonetheless! :cool: :D

    But I always got a kick out of the fact Mussolini in a gesture of "Tripartite Brotherhood" gave the JJapanese Army a bunch (I think a thousand?) of specially made Carcanos in 6.5 Jap....the General said "Thank you veddy much, Pasta breath" (or something like that!) and promptly gave them all to the Jap NAVY... :D :D :D
