Hi everyone, just got this deactivated 6.5mm Japanese Arisaka type 38 rifle. It is shown here with a replica sling and original accessories.
For those not familiar with these rifles, this was the standard Japanese service rifle of the Imperial Japanese Army (and Naval forces) during the war in China in the 30's and was one of two widely used service rifles during WW2, along with the larger caliber Type 99.
Any comments welcome. Doug
