This is a Model 38 6.5 mm live firing Arisaka rifle that was clearly a battlefield pick up as evidenced by the Imperial Chrysanthemum symbol on the knox which hasn't been defaced.The rifle has been recently proofed and has a good bore and is mechanically sound.
There is clear evidence of field use with dents and pressure marks and what looks like a bayonet defense mark on the fore end.There are no cracks or problems with the walnut stock which would affect shooting.
The Model 38 was used throughout the Japanese Chinese Invasion and WW2 and was the work horse of the Imperial Army until the introduction of the Model 99.
This rifle was manufactured by the Kokura Arsenal in the 26th Series. As a matter of interest the arsenal mark on the rifle represents a pile of 4 cannon balls viewed from above.
This is a rifle that definitely saw action and is as accurate today as it was 80 years ago.
