Where was it made? That is an extrodanry looking rifle. For seeing combat in teh pacific. These rifles are very sought after with the mum (Not Rising sun) intact. This means that a solider took this off the body of a dead jap solider. It has a bayonet as well. If it matches the rifle you got rifle worth a bit of change.
To figure out there it was made here is a web site that will clue you in.
Thanks for the comments guys, and yes the serial number is on the left side of the bolt. It reads 68496 with a few additional markings. The wood is in excellent condition with only a few scratches. I will take pictures of the serial number tonight.
