I have no idea what kind of gun this is. It was given to me from my dad and he got it from my uncle. I believe everything is still in working condition and would like to restore it

Can we see the action from the top & the entire rifle? Kind of looks like a Japanese Carcano............

The pattern looks like a Gewehr 88 but with oriental markings and a medalian.

Its a Japanese training rifle made from a GEW 88.
From what I read most had the magazine removed, and the sights replaced with Arisaka ones. Yours looks like one of the uncommon ones that still has the mag and 88 sights.

Its a shame the stock has been cut, Probably gonna next to impossible to replace....

I do not know if these trainers are safe to fire....

The Japanese would make training rifles from captured enemy ones.

It has a nice chunk of furniture, too bad someone cut it down. complete that stock would bring top busk.

That's what I was wondering, is if it had been cut. Would there be a site or somewhere to buy one? I've been wanting to try and make a gun stock, this might be my opportunity
