He is quite frugal and didnt think the gun was worth it. He grew up with a "you buy what you need only" mentality. I'll get it next time dont you worry

Outrageous, most arisaka shooters reload. I believe Trez has one if you need any specific info. I myself have little experience with them and am just STARTING to get over my distaste for japanese militaria.

Thanks. I kinda figured the prices would be bad.

It depends on what it is chambered in.

7.7 jap will run you about $26 per 20. That's not including shipping.

6.5 jap will cost about $27 plus shipping per 20.

I'd do ahead and get it. It's hard to find Arisakas in really good condition, and it's even rarer to find one in great condition for under $100. I'd talk to Trez about reloading though. That would save you a lot on ammo.

Type 99s are a bit more readily available than type 38s. Just got to know where to look for them (google it for dealers).

Type 99 - 7.7
Type 38 - 6.5
