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.

Type I Arisaka

#1 Post by ShaneB » Thu May 21, 2020 4:24 pm

I picked this Type I up since I had never seen one before. Very interesting rifle, being in a Japanese style stock and caliber, but have an Italian Carcano action. This example is duffelcut, but in very good condition otherwise.

These are great rifles. Very accurate. You can't see the duffel cut at all.

Nice that it came with its cleaning rod.
To old to fight and to old to run, a Jar head will just shoot and be done with you.

Where was it duffelcut? The wood looks seemless. How does it shoot? Good rifling?

I have not shot this rifle yet, still trying to source some good 6.5 Jap. The bore however looks mint, possibly never fired. The cleaning rod I believe is for a Type 99 long rifle as it doesn’t lock into the stock properly and has the same locking pattern as the one off my Tokyo Juki Kogyo 99 but is longer. The duffel cut is under the rear barrel band, so it is easily hidden, but still needs to be repaired.

I second the Steinel ammunition company. I've ordered 100's of 7.7x58 rounds from them with great success.

Haven’t seen that company before, but two recommendations is enough for me to grab a box or two of both 6.5 and 7.7 to try out. Thank you for the link!
