We have an Arisaka Type II Paratrooper rifle, which was used by the japanese during WWII. These rifles were manufactured between 1943 and 1945, when Arisaka discontinued all their rifles after WWII. There were only around 22,000 of these made, making this somewhat a rare find. The design of the Type II is based off of the Arisaka Type 99, a rifle that produced around 3.5 million units. The only notable difference is the stock that comes apart, seeing as it's a paratrooper rifle. The bolt is also slightly different. Needless to say, a good majority of these were likely destroyed after the war, with the exception of some that were brought home by the American soldiers. Out of all the arsenals that manufactured Arisaka's, Nagoya Arsenal was the only one that manufactured the Type II. I have some pictures of this rifle, so feel free to check them out. I consider my family very fortunate to have such a piece of history.
