    I did by this last weekend at a small military show. It looks to be all correct to me but would like other opinions. I really liked the sling and a translation would be greatly appreciated. I believe it is a series 28. Confirmation appreciated. The stock does not look to have been messed...
  2. Firearms Of The Rising Sun
    Picked this rifle up the 27th of October 2021, I know very little about my rifle's background in terms of manufacturing date and series. I also have a few pictures of a Early Type 30 bayonet, they are of both sides of the tang were most a serial number is and some odd markings along with the...
  3. Firearms Of The Rising Sun
    I recently acquired a Type 38 at a show for a good price, but something I noticed stamped on the receiver were a few markings on the Type 38 I have not seen before. I unfortunately could not get good pictures of all the markings due to how small they are. My major curiosity would be that three...

    I was at a garage sale and a guy had this in a box. The bore is .255" ish, and the barrel is defiantly carbine length.

    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...
  7. Firearms Of The Rising Sun
    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...
  8. Japanese Trader Board
    Hi Guys, Trying to clean out my safe to help fund for a new project in mind. I have for sale a Type 38 Carbine (No Series) by Koishikawa. Other Characteristics: Bolt Mismatch, Mum ground. Metal pitting is present, but it's hidden under the stock. It doesn't affect the performance of the rifle...
