The Arisaka rifle (有坂銃 Arisaka-jū) is a family of Japanese military bolt-action service rifles, in production and use since approximately 1897, when it replaced the Murata rifle (村田銃 Murata-jū) family, until the end of World War II in 1945. The most common specimens include the Type 38 chambered for the 6.5×50mmSR Type 38 cartridge, and the Type 99 chambered for the 7.7×58mm Type 99 cartridge, which was comparably powerful to a modern .308 round. Many thousands of Type 99s and other Arisaka variants were brought to the United States by soldiers as war trophies during and after World War II.

    Type 38 Arisaka

    Type 38 Arisaka in rough shape, mechanically fine but the stock is beat, cracked, and ugly. The pictures make it look better than it is. I was going to restore this but haven't had the spare time or funds so its time to send it on to somebody else. asking $150

    I'm looking to buy a YHM .30 cal Resonator The Resonator®, .30 Cal. for several different rifles, including my Ruger 5.56 Ranch Rifle. My Arisaka is 7.7 mm, and I wonder if a .30 caliber can will work on it, since .30 cal converts to 7.62mm, and 7.7mm converts to 19/64th (about .3039)...very...
