Condition is everything. An Arisaka 38 in excellent condition would be of interest to some Jap firearm collectors. For others, since the ammo is relatively unavailable, it would be of limited interest. I'm perhaps an exception, but I am primarily interested in old guns that I can shoot. I have plenty of wall-hangers already.

Two biggie questions. Does it still have the MUM (Flower) Crest on top of receiver? Do all numbers match? All numbers, such as those on bottom of bolt handle, should match last 3 of those on left side receiver.
