    I jumped into the Arisaka world with a low budget auction purchase. Yeah, I know you get what you pay for. I picked up a lot of 3 "parts guns" at an auction. I got 1 type 38, missing the firing pin and trigger guard, but has a complete but worn stock. I also got 2 late war type 99s. Both...

    Recently acquired a Type 30 with a concentric circle defacement and Japanese rack numbers (七二, '72' on the toe of the stock in addition to 一○七, '107' on the side). It also includes the modified bolt that other Type 30s modified for training possess. Though I noticed there was a wrist marking...

    Hello! I was wondering if anyone has ever converted 7.7 semi-rimmed Japanese machine gun ammo (Type 92) to the standard 7.7 Arisaka by filing down the rim or even milling? I have an opportunity to get my hands on a bit of 7.7 Type 92 MG ammo and was wondering if it could be converted? Thanks...

    A gentleman offered me a bubbad type 99 and what he said was a wartime Type 38 carbine. At first sight it looked like a vet had just cut down a type 38 long rifle but after looking through my copy of "Military Rifles of Japan" I'm pretty sure it's a cavalry carbine. He says that the follower has...

    I have a Type 99 I inherited from my grandfather. The whole gun (metal and all) was covered with some clearcoat shellac/varnish. My grandfather says it was like that way when he got it. I'm terrified what the gun looks like below the stock. I would like a gunsmith to give it a look over and...

    Hi there, I planned to get my hands on a Type 38 for a long time, and now I've got one in reach, which got a suspicious good-looking -marked- single-piece stock. Does any of you experts got any idea if this is an original? I have read that either Chinese or refurbished Japanese Type 38 could...

    My Type 38 rifle was not in the best condition when I received her but I love her nevertheless. I changed out of parts to get her in a better working condition. The stock is in a very rough shape especially the handguard and the condition of the handguard worsened after I attended a living...

    A buddy of mine sent me some photos for you guys to analyze, it's a sporterized Arisaka. Got a couple photos of serial numbers, please see attached!

    I've been looking for a copy of 'The Japanese Type 99 Arisaka Rifle' by Voigt, but they all appear to be sold out or out of print. I also checked out most of the rifle book links on the post 'Links to sites of interest, like Banzai; where to buy Books', but those too seem to be dead links. I...

    I have a that I am having a hard time tracing. It has a Nagoya Arsenal marking and similar features to a WW2 Arisaka, but it has Siamese markings on the action and bolt. I cannot find any serial number on it and cannot read the Siamese to know even what caliber it is. Can any of you shed some...

    Hey everyone, I have a Arisaka that was sporterized and was looking to find out more about it. I believe its a Type 99 but there are some characteristics that throw me off. I dont believe it to be a last ditch bc it does still have the adjustable rear sight and a cup metal buttplate. But it does...
