Default what is this please

Heres the deal
I had an employee come to me cause he knows I'm into guns he said he had an old model 330 22lr his neighbor wanted to sell for about a hundred dollars but it was in bad shape and told him to send me some pics when he could. Instead he brings the rifle to the office and I looked at it and opened the bolt and it's obviously not a 22lr and I mean obviously lol I told him it was in awful shape (which it is) and id give him 40 bucks out of curiosity. His neighbor says yes I give him the cash and now its mine. I would like to know what the hell it is I looked at the scope and its a weaver model 330 in 5/10 shape id say. They thought it was the rifle model. And the rifle has a chrysanthemum marking so I think it is Japanese but not sure here are some pics maybe you guys can help me out

Yeah, the ground off chrysanthemum is characteristic of a wartime Arisaka, not a field capture though. The chrysanthemum was the symbol of The Emperor...grinding it off post war was done to save him from the shame of surrender.

Are there marks on the lower hand guard from the barrel bands...the upper may have been lost at some point. Is the barrel exposed?

OK...if this is the intact rollmark, it's looks to be an Arisaka Model 44...hopefully C3 or one of the other walking encyclopedia will come along and pin it down for you.
