    Need Help Identifying Arisaka Rifle Type 38?

    Picked this up today and have found absolutely zero marks on it, minus the "11"? on stock. Last ditch? Any help on this would be much appreciated.

    Looks to be a training rifle.

    +1, that reciever is crude, even by last ditch standards, i believe it to be a non firing trainer.

    Thank you. Am I on the right track assuming it's a 38? is it perhaps a 99?

    Actually pretty cool-- looks to be complete. There are many variations found. Most were made to fire blanks. They are a nice addition to an Arisakaicon or Japanese Militaria collection. Yes--I agree --do not fire. Salt Flat

    It's not a 38 or a 99. It's a training rifle. Made by various companies on the cheap, never intended to be fired. It's strictly used for rifle drills and possibly bayonet practice. This is not to be confused with training rifles that can be fired. These are nearly all Type 30 or 38 rifles which were retired from active service and are marked as such. In appearance, training rifles would be more closely aligned with the 38 than a 99.

    There are T-38 and T-99 type training rifles . They were made to train people to operate real T-38 or T-99 rifles , so were made to look the same but do not have real rifle parts . No training rifles were ever made to fire live ammo . Most School rifles can fire live ammo . They were once real rifles pulled from service . School rifles and training rifles are not the same thing .
