I'll be checking eBay, GunBroker, forums, ect regularly for an original stock. Hopefully a Kokura one.

I got the rifle in the mail the other day. It was very cool having it waiting on the front doorstep! I'm happy with it. It's all matching except for the bolt, its a complete mismatch. The stock is actually pretty good looking in person for being a sporter stock. The finish on the barreled receiver is very nice, it's odd because the finish on the floor plate is nearly in the white but it matches the rifle. The bore looks 10 times better after I gave it a good cleaning, there's a slight bit of darkness in the grooves, but it's barely noticeable. The bolt operation is horrendous though, very stiff and gritty. Maybe it's because the bolts were matched to their rifles and this one is a total m/m, I cleaned the bolt and scrubbed the chamber to no avail. One negative thing is that whoever put the Boyds stock on ground down the rear action screw to be flush with the action, so that's going to need to be purchased before I find the correct stock. The mum is full and complete. It is a second series Kokura, the Kokura marking was below the woodline, so that puts this rifles year of manufacture from 1933-1940. Any advice? It is appreciated as always!

Nice rifle Zaitsev. That intact mum makes me a little jealous (yours too trez ) When you find a factory stock, let me know if you want to sell that sporter stock. I just might be interested in it.

I say stick with the internet searches for the parts you need, research the history of your rifle, and do what i have been doing. go to the gun shows on the weekends, and look for hidden treasures. Doing so led to me finding a bayonet for an 1893 mauser rifle. my problem is that I need the one for a 1916 Guardia Civil which is about 9 inches longer. So close, yet so far away........

As you come up with Arisaka questions, ask Trez or Nitestalker. They haven't steered me wrong when I've needed to learn more on these rifles.

For now, get the ammo, Norma and hornady make it only once a year from what I have seen, and it is only a small amount when they do. Look into a Type 99, you can fire form .30-06 and 7.92 Mauser brass to fire it out of the 7.7 mm chamber, and keep your eyes open for 6.5 ammo. when you see it in stock, order it.

For now, enjoy the hunt, and good luck.

Mismatched bolts on T38's isnt uncommon. But it shouldnt be gritty or hard to operate.

It's stiff, that last little but to close it you have to give it a good push. And to pull the bolt back it takes a good pull. I'll give it a better cleaning once I get the correct cleaning supplies.

It appears you do have a carbine bolt (or at least the safety) Make sure the bolt is assembled correctly and there isnt any crud you missed.

It should be easier to operate than a Mosin bolt!

None of the bolt parts match. I'll go back and clean it again. There was a little bit of grease and gunk in the safety knob that I couldn't get at the time. I watched a few YouTube videos to make sure I reassembled it right.
This one here is a lot worse than my Mosin
