This is a very nice Japanese Type 38 carbine with full mum manufactured at the Koishikawa Arsenal. Chambered in 6.5mm Japanese, this rifle has a good bore that is strong in rifling with darkness in the grooves. The metal finish is good throughout with some wear that can be seen in the pictures. The stock is in good shape with wear through out. The handguard has a repair near the front rivet. The numbers do not appear to match. Mechanically everything works just as it should. There are no import marks on this carbine. It comes with original cleaning rod.
