Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

Sporterized

#1 Post by Pauljbk » Sun Jun 25, 2017 3:09 pm

This is one of three arisakas handed down from two grandfather's that served in the navy and coast guard. This one was a rope hole and has a high number serial number. I wish he would of left this one as is but what's done is done. If anyone knows anything about this arisaka please share, thanks Paul

I was told that this would of been a highly collectable arisaka with the serial number being so high is that true? Either way I can't wait to shoot it and will try it soon.

Looks like a late war or "Last Ditch" Arisaka.

I agree. It Looks to me from what I can see that it's one of the last ditch made in the Nagoya arsenal but that's all I can tell from those to pictures. Nagoya made rifles from 1923- 1945. The little simbol to the left of the serial # is the series mark but it's too blurry for me to make it out in my picture. Nagoya made series 1-12 with 99,999 in each series except for 12 wich only had approximately 1,000 if I remember correctly.
EDIT... They made t 99 1933-1945 before that they made 38 and 44 s

It's very most likely a series eleven. Dust cover grooves were eliminated late in the series, and this one certainly is late in the series! (If it were a series twelve I'd vomit...Bubba finds the good ones. ;) )
