Default WW2 jap rifle, Arisaka type 38

It has some wear and tear, I've never shot it. 7.7 jap cal.
I have the bayonet, with scabard. Also has the foul weather bolt cover.
The mum has been stamped out. I can e mail pics.
$200.00 or trade for a 22 rifle of some sort.

you mean 6.5 jap? its the only caliber the type 38 was made in.

yours, if its really a 7.7 is either a type 99 (short or long) or a type 2.
these type are the only ones used by the imperial army made by ariska in that caliber.

the type 1, 30, 38 (short and long), 44, 97 were all chambered inthe 6.5 jap round.

these ( type 38) were the most common jap rifles.

retail you can find what i believe you have at the gun shows in the box for 110-120 dollars with no mum markings. if it had mum markings you ccould have added another 200-300 dollars to the value but they are very rare too.

bayonet depending on condition is worth 20-50 dollars

the scabard is the kicker. if its in real good shape they can bring up to 100 dollars if its not than only 20-30 bucks. being you have a scabard and claim its a 7.7 than more than likely you have a type 99 short as the shorts were used for the troops on horses

if you post a pic i can help you nail down the details of the gun for you.

If it is a 7.7 Jap, that's a fairly good rifle. My dad has taken many deer with his 7.7 Jap. I've seen him pick a deer off at 150yds on the dead run with it. Granted the shooter is most of it but the gun still needs to perform.

the 6.5 jap round is equally good too.

both rounds are kinda expensive though
