The front end of the stock is shorter than a standard type 38 rifle in front of the rear band. What type of rifle is this stock for? Thanks

I've found pictures of type 38 cavalry short rifles but I don't know enough about them to tell for sure if it is one as they are rarer than the standard t-38.

I think the type 38 cavalry short rifle has a slightly different shape and a metal ring on the side??? Honestly, looks like a shortened version on my T-38 rifle. Is the stock finished in the orig. Urushi shellac/varnish??? :think: :think: :think: :think: :think: :think:

That's exactly what it is, if it is indeed what I think it is. I've found a small amount of info on re-arsenal type 38 that had the barrel cut to around 25" and stock cut down to fit. From the little I can find they are rare. With the cosmoline and aging on the stock I don't think this is a post war bubba job.

I'm new to Arisaka rifles... Just acquired a T-38 (posted here on this forum). Do you have any pics of this shortened T-38 =D> =D>
Maybe it was made for this guys grandfather???

I don't have a picture but if you do an image search under Arisaka type 38 cavalry short rifle they will come up along with t38 carbines, t44 and a few others. I've found a few complete rifles for sale and a small article on Wikipedia under Arisaka type 38 and that's about it until one of the Arisaka whisperers comes along and says yea or nay.

Could it be from one of these conversions done by the Chinese? While not identical it's close!

It could be one of those. I only have the wood so can't say for sure.
