Help needed


Registered Users do not see the above ad.


Hello,

I am trying to find someone to help me identify a rifle. I have attached a couple pictures. If someone could identify it or point me in the right direction I would greatly appreciate it.

Thanks so much for all your help!

Welcome to the Shooter's Forum, glad you stopped by.

The second and third link didn't download for me. So that left me with a view of the right side of the rifle and a couple of the bayonet. Judging from what I see in the first photo it appears to be a Mauser but the model I'm not sure of. Maybe if you could supply photos of the markings this rifle has it would help identify it. (providing they weren't in the second and third link)

Arisaka for sure. Looks like you found it out in a barn!

Appears to be original and might be of interest to a collector of WWII rifles.

As mentioned, it is an Arisaka. Two holes in top of receiver should make it a type 38 that should be chambered in 6.5x50 Jap cartridge.

nthoms,

You have a Japanese Arisaka Rifle in TERRIBLE condition? Where was it stored? If it is a Type 99, at least it will have a chrome-lined bore and chamber. You do not have an economic triumph there; I would off $20 for a parts gun.

The writing on the stock is not generally found on the Arisaka, and the dust cover is a rarity.

Thanks for the post. I found it in the basement of my in-laws house. Not sure what to do with it. Where could I get something like this restored?

I'd like to find out how to get it restored. My father inlaw received this many years ago from his grandfather and I thought it would be nice to restore it for him. But if it's not worth the time and effort then I should probably just leave it be.

thanks for your insights.

Its probably not worth the money, restored collector firearms lose most if not all of their value, however I would like to see a picture with the bolt open, from what i can see the dust cover did a **** of a job protecting the action. It may not be as bad off as it looks. If the action is sound everything else can be replaced, the stock looks dry, stained and weathered but sound.
