Konichiwa!! This is a Japanese Type 38 bolt action WWII Carbine rifle that was adopted by the Imperial Japanese Army in 1905 ( the 38th year of the Meiji period, hence the name Type 38). This rifle is 50.2” with a 31” barrel. It weight 9lbs 4oz. It takes a 6.5x50mm cartridge. Has a 5 round magazine. Adjustable rear sights. The stock is in good shape for its age. There is some freckling on the receiver and barrel but no deep pitting. The bluing is decent at about 85%. A small chip on the upper butt stock, but doesn’t effect the integrity of the rifle. Has upper and lower strap mounts. Nice piece for the collector.
