This is a nice original Japanese Type 38 Arisaka Rifle that was manufactured at the Nagoya Arsenal. This rifle is being sold as a project that rifle that needs a little TLC and restoration work. I have fired this rifle several times and while it shoots fine, it has trouble chambering and extracting cartridges and appears to have a rough chamber. It could need rebarreled or perhaps this barrel could be saved with some elbow grease. This rifle is not import marked and is most likely a WWII bringback. If you’re looking for a fun project to have a fine shooting Type 38 Arisaka, this is an excellent rifle to fit that bill.
