The Arisaka-designed Type 38 rifle was the longest rifle with the strongest bolt of any used during World War II. While the 6.5×50mm Arisaka round that the Type 38 fires isn't the most powerful of the era, it produces little recoil when fired. The 38 was made extra long due to the shorter stature of the Japanese troops who used it and a bayonet was a standard feature. The shorter Cavalry Carbine variant was made for cavalry, quartermasters, engineers, and other troops that served away from the front lines. This sporterized rifle features an adjustable rear sight and a palm 2-position safety. Its wood, metal, and bore are all in good condition.
