I would pass on the action only deal. I have seen complete Arisaka's for well under $200.

It was Hatcher that did the military bolt action tests. He tested a Type 38. It took welding a bolt in the barrel and even then the barrel exploded not the action. The rifle was later rebarreled and functioned perfectly.

Any word on that $50 Arisaka yet?

There was another one there too IIRC, but its sort of a monstrosity.... It looks like to me to be a T38 action with a T99 barrel but it was cut down on the chamber end and rechambered to .308.. I would think that would make it some sorta .308 with a .311 bullet? I think he wanted $125 for that one, but it was complete, someone even made a stock so it doesnt have the rear tangs like the military action would. (Dont know how great it is?)

I'll pass on the mix matched Arisaka.

I've decided that I'll probably use a mauser action for my build. If the shop still has that $50 Arisaka, I still want it. Either as just a shooter, or maybe a resoration project.

I'm surprised that everybody is supporting destroying a milsurp gun. Please don't do it!

Because theres plenty that are already "destroyed", I dont think hes referring to using a pristine one...

1. I wouldn't do it, as they are decent enough actions. Heat treating though was SPOTTY at best.
2. You can get 700 actions cheap.
3. Oh dear here comes the milsurp crybabies. A rifle is a rifle is a rifle. It doesn't matter if it was once a military gun or now. Why are so many people so crazy for not destroying a gun. I myself would much rather see someone take a 98 m out of the cabinet or safe and rebarrel re stock it and use it over seeing one just waste away in storage never to be used. Guns are meant to be SHOT not looked at. I have at least 2 dozen DESTROYED milsurps in my safes. All shoot better than any factory gun out there.

I support a guy make a gun that he wants to shoot and use. That is what I support.
