I can scratch Japan off my WWII powers list now because I just got an Arisaka Type 38 Carbine. I've been wanting one for a while now, but haven't found one that had what I was looking for. After a quick Google search I found out it's a second series Type 38 made between 1933 and 1940, the mum is intact, and it's a Kokura factory rifle. The only downside is the stock has been sporterized (luckily it's the only sporterized part), and stocks are hard to find and cost more than what I got the rifle for. I was told the bore is a little dark, and the rifling is "very evident". I have found that 6.5x50 is hard too come by as well, but I can probably just reload it, although Graf and Sons had it for $16/box but they were sold out. What else should I know about these rifles? What is y'alls opinion? All feedback is appreciated!
