Reason: edit title
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.
