    Hi Bill,here is some more pics of the T38.The stock was replaced by the Thai army and is a one piece buttstock.The man I got the rifle from shortened the barrel to 22 inches and put a different front sight on it,so no real collector value.

    Still a nice piece. Even with the over stamp. A larger majority that I have seen just have the Mum ground off. Have you shot it?

    Hi,the overstamp would have been done by the Japanese when the weapons were surplused off to the Thai army.I have shot it a lot and reload for it also. These rifles were used by the Thais during WW2 as they were an ally of the Japanese.

    Great! I shoot all my surplus stuff too. I reload but mostly pistol. I send away for surplus ammo even though a lot of it is corrosive. Just got to clean sooner before the barrel and parts rust. I gotta get my hands on a Arisaka one of these days.
