Went looking in area pawn shops and found two really good deals. First up is this Type I, I read these were generally issued to Naval units. It is in very good condition. The wood has contracted around were it is dovetailed, other then that she is pretty clean.

Hard to find the correct cleaning rod and sling for the Type-I. With the nice gun, looks like you scored the trifecta.

Just a quick reminder to anyone reading who doesn't know, the "I" in Type I is pronounced "eye", for Italia.

It is a Carcano based hybrid which uses a Mauser/Arisaka type magazine instead of the Carcano's Mannlicher style en-bloc clip system. It uses Japanese bayonets. I think they may use Japanese type sling attachments. Mine has what looks like a reproduction Italian sling on it, I wonder if the Type Is came with a sling and an oiler or some sort of somilar package when they were shipped to Japan.

I recall reading that the Type I's were shipped to Japan by submarine, but not where they were delivered to or whose submarines shipped them. The Japanese Navy only ordered the Type Is because the Imperial army demanded all of the production of Arisakas and had priority over the navy. There seems to have been a lot of counterproductive inter-service rivalry and competition for resources in all of the militaries in most countries, but the Japs really had a hard time in this area.

I have one just like that. It had the gap on the stock like that too.
Take a hypo needle filled with BLO and inject it into the gap, making
sure to really flood it. It took a few weeks, but the gap finely started
to close up. The wood is so dry, it has shrunk and the BLO will swell
the wood back to normal. Give it a try....nothing ventured, nothing
gained. Hope this helps.....

I was actually thinking about doing that when I got it. I guess the dry conditions in Az got to it. I used the gap issue while haggling over the price,low balling the guy behind the counter, was surprised when he didn't counter my offer.

Chris, nice rifle hear the sling is worth more then the rifle,do you know the history of that rifle?

Type "I" rifles are usually good shooters. I enjoy mine. I use my own reloads neck sized for my Type "I". Enjoy your rifle.

The split must be common. My Type I that my father-in-law liberated from the Emperor, has the same thing. Very nice example though. How much did it set you back? Around Birmingham, the few Type I's that I have seen are listed for around $500.
My father-in-law was offered $500 in 1945 on the boat back from Japan and turned them down. If he had taken the money, put it in the bank at 6% over 71 years, that $500 would roughly be $32,000. Einstein had it right, the most powerful force in the universe is compound interest.

Type I's are great looking rifles but I've never had the pleasure of securing one for my collection. It seems like when one pops up here that there's something else I want more that shows up to the same show. I've seen a few type I's in person and at every show I see them they're always priced between $250-$350 just because we don't have the big collecting market most other states have (low demand, low supply, usually below average pricing unless something rare or unusual).

The stock isn't split. Japanese stocks were made from 2 pieces of wood, hence the line.
