WWII Japanese Army Arisaka Rifle - 1 -
The Arisaka rifle was the standard weapon for the Imperial Japanese Army.
Arisaka Rifle is a family of Japanese military bolt-action rifles, in production from approximately 1898 until the end of
World War II in 1945. The most common specimens include the Type 38 rifle chambered in the 6.5x50mm Arisaka cartridge, and
the Type 99 rifle chambered in the 7.7x58mm Japanese cartridge. Many thousands of Type 99s were brought to the United States
by GIs during and after World War II.
The Imperial Japanese stamp, known as the "Mum" is still present on the upper section of
the rifle. This symbol was usually ground off upon surrender. Soldiers considered it
dishonorable to leave it intact.
The stock has a mark painted on white. The 1/10 is more than likely an arsenal marking.
The stock is capped with a separate piece of wood.
The Arisaka rifle came equipped with an open iron sight. The bayonet lugnut can be seen
on the lower section of the rifle.
