Beautiful rifle.

Interesting sling. Not quite sure what that is; doesn't look like the usual five by three hole Arisaka sling. What is it?

Tak,
That beats mine. I just got my first and only MATCHING T38 assembly number gun. In the 1.7 million range. But of course, it looks nothing like that. I'm just glad to finally find one.
My early Type 38 in the 1.6 million range was my first Arisaka. It as given to me by my Dad 50 years ago who took it along with two bayonets and a flag, from the Tachibana Maru. It was a Japanese Hospital Ship that was transporting IJA troops. The destroyer my Dad was a sonar man on (USS Charette), "captured" the ship in 1945 (you can find the story on YouTube). The rifle is completely matched to the dust cover. Probably my greatest treasure.
