    the arisaka is not a trash gun by any stretch. for a while hey were in high demand by big game hunters who liked to use the extremely strong action for rechambering them for big game calibers.

    yours looks pretty trashed. i would take it to a different gunsmith that wasnt talking out his butt to find out if its in working condition or not and if its been rechambered or not.

    Disable it? Uh oh. Anyway, JonM is quite right. Interesting tests proved the Arisaka the stongest action of WWII and the Nambu the most accurate pistol.

    Oh, and lower the sight and find a bayo too if you are gonna hang it up.

    $500 for parts? No, not worth it unless it's a mint paratrooper. Look elsewhere for parts. Otherwise it's a tomato stake.

    I reAlly want to get this type 99 shooting but I don't know what necessary tools and parts that I need to get it shooting I am a master automotive technician by trade and I am positive that I can do the work you put together I just need to know what parts I need to get it functioning in and what solvents I need to clean barrel and get the rust and off

    First off.. Its a Type 38.

    It doesnt look to be missing much... just the bolt spring, safety, and firing pin? How bad is the stock broken? Are you sure its in .30-06?
    I would have it checked out by a couple of gunsmiths before you give up on it...

    Could we get a pic of the top of the rifle?

    I love my Arisakas!
