    Imperial Japanese Army Nagoya Arsenal Arisaka 6.5mm Calibre Rifle With Imperial Chrysanthemum Insignia, Sling, Type 30 Bayonet By Kaneshiro Sakuganki Seizo KK Arsenal (Nagoya Star K) & Scabbard. Sn 17854 - 17854

    The Arisaka Rifle was designed by Colonel Nariakira Arisaka 1852–1915. The Arisaka bolt-action rifle was used heavily everywhere the Imperial Japanese Army fought. This is an excellent Arisaka Bolt action Rifle. It has all original woodwork and metal work with original finish throughout. The wood has just bumps and bruises to be expected with age and service use. It has its original winged fore sight, flip up ladder rear sight, bayonet lug, sling swivels, cleaning rod and steel butt plate. The rifle is 50” overall length. At the end of WW2, one of the final standing orders of the Imperial Army was to file off the Emperor's family Chrysanthemum insignia, or 'Mon', from each of the rifles, thereby preventing the dishonour of surrendering the symbol. This rifle is one of the few to survive with the Chrysanthemum 'mon' insignia which is crisply stamped on the breech housing. The frame has the Nagoya arsenal mark and serial number ‘49031’ together with Japanese script inspection mark (all illustrated). Deactivated to UK/EU specification in 2018 the rifle cocks and dry fires. There is no visible external evidence of the deactivation process. The rifle has its original cleaning rod and its sling swivels are fitted with a brown leather sling. Included is an original Japanese Arisaka Bayonet 1897-1950 (Type 30) bayonet & scabbard (see page 203 of The Bayonet Book by Peter White). It has a hooked quillon and muzzle ring. The wood grips have the knocks bumps and bruises to be expected with age and service use. The 15 ¾” single edge blade with fullers is undamaged. The riccaso has the crisp manufacturer marks of the Kaneshiro Sakuganki Seizo KK Arsenal (Nagoya Star K). The metal scabbard with ball end has no dents and is fitted with original leather frog with 2 belt loops. The frog’s buckle and leather strap is present but one end of the strap has become detached (could easily be repair stitched). The price includes UK/EU deactivation certificate and UK delivery.
