This is a very nice all original Japanese Type 38 carbine manufactured at the Koishikawa arsenal and chambered in 6.5mm Japanese. This carbine has a good bore that is bright with strong rifling and just a little bit of frosting in the grooves. The bolt is not matching to the carbine. This carbine has a full chrysanthemum that has not been defaced in any way. The stock is in good shape with just a small split in the upper handguard. The original cleaning rod is present.
