    25th series, Kokura Arsenal, Arisaka Type 38, serial 00451

    Hello everyone

    Does anyone have a book about the T38, specifically parts, Serial numbers? The one that I have seen are not published anymore?

    I am needing some T38 parts with the stamp #451 on them for a restoration, please check your parts supply you are willing to sell.



    I'm also interested in locating a battlefield T38 stock, no modifications.

    Thanks

    Fortunately I have found the missing parts, and were able to move on to other pressing issues with the rifle. I am working on the headspace, truing it up.

    The Arisakaicon book has helped me a lot figuring out the correct parts. It's difficult to find a model 38 rifle with a intact mum, that has seen the battlefield.

    Most receivers are defaced, stamped over, ruined, used for schools, etc., but this one is pristine, nothing but the original factory markings. Best of all is it is a model 38 from the 1930's, It's made by the Japan government, under strict building requirement assuring a quality rifle, A safe rifle, once it has been restored.

    Are you setting the barrel back by one turn and recutting the chamber? Or two turns? That would be ambitious.

    It's all done, the headspace is exact. The military rifles are so much better built. It takes a beating and still delivers a accurate rifle. Restoration of the model 38 is easier to accomplish since the rifle was built before WWII.

    The 25th series Kokura Arsenal Arisakaicon Type 38 serial 00451 is awesome to work on, A better rifle than the 99. Finding one that is not disfigured, re stamped, a POS, is hard to locate. This one that I am restoring is/was missing parts that I was able to find.

    One part that is been very difficult to find is the safety. Anyone has a late 38 safety I'm looking for one.

    All of the firearms in my armory are 100% correct. Every firearm headspace is right on, you can grab any of them and they are ready to shoot. I have 60+ firearms every one of them has been restored perfectly.

    I guess the Japaneseicon 38 is unpopular, I will have to move on and find others who can help me. Thanks.
