That is a Type 44 - Model of 1915
Found in Carbine Configuration only
3 Variations Identified by Bayonet Housings

Is it worth 40 Bucks ? ABSOLUTELY..............The action alone is worth that much !

Before you shoot it I would suggest having a gunsmith do a casting of the chamber. The original Arisaka type 44 was chambered for 6.5 x 55mm I believe, if it is marked 7.7 it may have been rechambered at some point or the barrel was swapped or counterbored for a type 99, 7.7 x 58mm, actually that wouldn't be a surprise given the modifications already made.
