    This is my Japanese Arisaka Rifle. Based on the markings and my research, I figure the following: Early Type 99 Nagoya Arsenal 5th series 1: Does it appear to be missing anything besides the cleaning rod? 2: Would this have a long cleaning rod? A long peice of wire goes all the way down. And...

    I recently got an arisaka type 38 with a sporterized stock. I was wondering if I could take a single piece stock off a training type 38 and use it. I am also curious as to what other parts are cross compatible. Any input is greatly appreciated!!!

    I have an Arisaka that I can not identify. The ONLY identification that I can find is a S/N 120xx. I can not find an Arsenal Mark, Series Mark, etc. I think it is a Type 38, but not even sure of that. My Type 99 is clearly marked with Kanji.

    This rifle was given to me very recently by my grandfather. He got it from one of his brothers who was in occupied Japan after the bombs dropped. I've been doing online research and took it to two separate shops in which both could not solidly nail down this type of rifle. It appears to have...

    Found a type 38 Arisaka in 7.7 with unusual kanji stamped on top of the action. My kanji is sub par but characters look like: "Well Test(?) Type". Has no mum (not struck out or ground off) has dust cover and early long tongue knob on back of bolt. Wondering if this could be a 1929 test rifle...
