Sale!

$499.99 $429.99

This is an original Japanese Type 38 rifle manufactured at the Koishikawa Arsenal complete with the seldom seen bringback shipping crate. This rifle functions fine and should make for a good shooter.  There are obviously no import marks as this is a WWII bringback. The mum is complete and has not been defaced.  The crate has a few cracks and no lid, but is an original shipping crate built by a GI to ship the rifle home during WWII. It is blank with no address, but there are remnants of where the paperwork was located. Rifle is missing the cleaning rod, but is otherwise complete.
