Help in identifying marks on a Type 38 and Type 99 Arisaka
These are pics (admittedly bad) of two Arisakas in my uncle's possession. Sadly, they have been sporterized ages ago, but I'm just concerned with identifying the meaning of their markings as Lord knows trivia like this fascinates me no end, but I'm not terribly knowledgeable about the Arisaka rifle family.
Here is the side of the receiver of his Type 38; all I can determine is that it was made at either the Koishikawa arsenal or the Kokura arsenal and I cannot figure out much more beyond that:
This was the best picture of the receiver side of the Type 99 I was able to get in the time I had; all that is visible, I assume, is the arsenal mark and some other character I cannot identify. Sadly, the rest of the rifle appears to have been scrubbed clean:
They arent that expensive to feed,if you stay away from the fancy food like norma,why feed them filet mignon when they digest bologna better to start with.Buy hornady or order it from MrNambu and its as good or better than norma ammo (norma is excellent brass tho if you reload,just the ammo is poorly fitted to arisaka).
