Any information on this would be appreciated.
What markings are on it?
Those are the only marking on it. His grandfather says he's had it for over 40 years and it was old when he got it.
Some better pics of the action and bolt would be useful.
Type I Arisaka. Made in Italy for Japan.
BillM got it... Its been sporterized too.
Well, I recognized it as an Italian Carcano rifle and I do own a Type I Italian rifle made for Japan. Perhaps I just flat missed it, but curious what you see in pics that reveals it as a type I.
The third pic from the bottom is a good view of the Carcano safety and bolt. The
pic in the original post shows that the gun has an internal magazine rather than the
Carcano magazine housing which is below the stock.
Carcano action without a Carcano magazine----Type I Arisaka.
All of the Carcano rifles made by Japan had 2 Pcs. butt stocks?? Japan made Arisaki Rifles in 6.5 for England in WWI. These were used by British Home Guards in WWII. I know this is off the subject??
A pair of shoes?
I think he was talking about information about the carpet. Or maybe the couch.
Japan made Arisakas for Mexico too... (Ive been hoping for one since I live so close to the border.. )
