Product Information

This is an exceedingly rare Chinese "Six-Five built copy of the Japanese Type 38 Arisaka. It was made at the Taiyuan Arsenal in the late 1920s early 1930s for the warlord of Shansi province, General Yen Hsi-shan. The receiver is 六五步槍  or six-five rifles. An estimated 108,000 were ever made! The Chinese Type 38 were converted to short barrel from it's original long barrel configuration with varying degrees of quality to the re-crowning. This rifle bears stamping and characters unique to the type, with Chinese markings denoting "6.5 Military Type" stamped on the receiver. The Chinese made a variety of configuration changes to these rifles.  This example bears plenty of evidence of these practices with the addition of a K98 front barrel band. These rifles were used during the Sino-Japanese War - 1937 to 1945 between Japanese and China. This rifle has plenty of battle scars. You are unlikely to see another! A rare find.
