    I have a Arisaka 44 Cavalry Carbine Japanese Rifle from WW2 my father brought back from Japan after the occupation in 1946.

    Based upon it's markings, I believe it is a Series 1 made by Kokura around 1939 - 40 circa. I also believe it is a version #3 based upon it's bayonet attachment.

    It has the chrysanthemum symbol intact, Model 44, serial number 08057 with matching numbers on the bolt, bayonet and barrel.

    Can someone please verify for me this information? I will attach pictures for identification.

    Thanks - JayW
