Default Arisaka Thread

Hey, why should the Mosin guys have all the fun?... Show off those "Jap" rifles! Bonzai!!!

Heres what I have so far...
Type 38 Long Rifle, and im usually not interested in Arisakas with the "Mum" ground, but this one had all the accessories, Cleaning rod, Dust cover, and even the sling! It looks to be school rifle with the markings, but has a really nice bore and good rifling, and the proof marks service rifles have. Im guessing it was a school rifle that might of been returned to service? Its not a matching # but all the numbers are from only two rifles, and the 2 non-matching numbers are stamped on the bottom of the receiver, along with (what im guessing) is a two digit inspector number on all the parts.

Ive heard school rifles can be unsafe to shoot, but those are the smoothbore ones right? This one should be safe, shouldnt it?

Type 38 Carbine, It still has the Mum. I need to get a stock for it but are hard to find and expensive.. Im thinking I might just get a repro one from Numrich... Everything matches, but the bolt and it has all the armorer marks, So Im sure it was refurbished by the Japanese military..

Type 99, Still has the Mum and is 100% matching (except for whats missing, Dust cover and monopod) It is not a "last ditch" and has the Anti-Aircraft sights..

Type 2 " Paratrooper, It really sucks I only have half!! The Mums ground but its all matching.... Nobody happens to have a barrel half to a type 2 lying around do they?

I'd love an Arisaka, but so far all I can find are ones that look like they have been dragged through a swamp (and I mean literally dragged), and beat to hell. I usually see them go for $300-$400. I'd love to find some that looked as nice as yours for that price.

A "Bonsai" is a type of a tree. I think the word you're looking for is "banzai".

You don't need to be sorry it's an honest mistake, and it' not like anybody died.

Default New T99!!

My new T99... Its a Kokura Arsenal 24th series, all matching with the "Mum", even got the bayonet with it. A little sad it doesnt have the AA sights, but it does have the chrome lined barrel and is a great shooter; I couldnt pass it up...

According to what ive read its a "Simplified T99".. Tthat this was the second to last series from this arsenal, the only series of "simplified T99"s, as in the next and last series were the "Substitute" (or last ditch?) rifles.

The bayonet is a Mukden, and came with the frog... I read that the Mukden rifles are rare (Only about 3,000?), are the bayonets any rarer than others?

@Trez,

I have been eyeballin one of these for a few months now at the shop near my house. Was not sure if I wanted one or not. Now, looking at the pics posted here I have decided to get at least one for my WWII collection.

Can you provide some details about them?

What I am looking for is: What type of protectant that is normally on them, I.E. Linseed Oil, Lacquer?
What should I look for when buying on?
What accessories comes with them, if any?
And anything else that you would think that would be helpful.

Thanks!
