the arisaka is not a trash gun by any stretch. for a while hey were in high demand by big game hunters who liked to use the extremely strong action for rechambering them for big game calibers.

yours looks pretty trashed. i would take it to a different gunsmith that wasnt talking out his butt to find out if its in working condition or not and if its been rechambered or not.

Atleast pull the tape off and glue the stock so it has some dignity:p

Disable it? Uh oh. Anyway, JonM is quite right. Interesting tests proved the Arisaka the stongest action of WWII and the Nambu the most accurate pistol.

Oh, and lower the sight and find a bayo too if you are gonna hang it up.
