    Thank you! You always hear about the "duffel cut" Kar98ks so I assumed the same would happen for the Arisakas and was wondering if NVGuy's gun was one of those. Learned something new today!

    Thank you, that explains it. Obtaining a new stock and upper handguard will set you back a few hundred dollars, if you can find them. As I said earlier, I think your best bet is to look for a...

    Based upon the series stamping, it would be April of 1944 to April of 1945. It doesn't appear to be a "last ditch" rifle so I would guess it is closer to the summer of '44 since it still has the...

    Arisakas are weird in that buying a full gun is usually cheaper than buying parts and building one. For some reason, replacement Atisaka parts are really expensive. You may be better off buying...

    Just have to keep hitting gun shows once they reopen. Prices are pretty crazy unless you find a motivated buyer. Cheapest Russian Capture I have seen in the past 2 years was $600 but at the same show...

    From what I can see in the pictures, it appears that you have a couple of "Russian Capture" Kar98's. One of them has the "x" mark on the receiver. They are basically a mishmash of parts from a...
