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 have a single piece stock




Thanks you and kind regards from Germany :)

BTW: If someone know how it is possible to become an owner of BANZAI Special Project #8 "The Type 38 Arisaka". Please let me know :D

Many T 38 type training rifles had one piece stocks; though most are not interchangeable/identical to a T38 "normal, 2 piece" stock.
Welcome, join the Banzai Association. The author plans a new edition of the T 38 book, and it may be this year!

You need to show us the markings on the receiver, to determine if this is a T38 rifle or a T38 trainer.

It is a Thaï Type 83 with a 1-piece Thaï replacement stock.
As you probably know, the most part of Arisakas you and me can find in our european contries are from thai surplus.

I have seen it on eGun, bolt is mismatch, but it is in pretty nice shape !

Best regards from a neighbor. ;)

Hey Ho! 😄 You are right and it really looks like a huge mashup of different parts to good to be a true type 38 in Europe.
Mismath would be OK, but somehow i can not warm my heart up for a Thai type 38 😅

Great to hear that! Really looking forward to a re-release of the Banzai Books!

Thanks!
