Default Japanese Rifles

Were the Japanese Rifles the only ones with two piece butt stocks?

Were the Type 44’s ever issued with one piece stocks or replacement stocks one piece.

Once upon a time I owned a Finn Mod 39 that was two piece.

I saw a Type 44 with a one piece stock, am I to assume it’s a replacement stock. Don’t see too many of them so I was interested. I can find anything on a one piece stock but seems like they are out there.

???

You may be thinking of the foregrip splice. But a Finn M39 is a horizontal splice in the buttstock. You can see it here



Here is another



And another



Well... you get the idea

I had a sporterized Type I that I sold on here earlier this year. Very few markings. Made without a mum. When I bought it the shop advertised it as 6.5 carcano luckily I researched it before buying ammo. Chambered in 6.5 Arisaka

I never took mine out of the stock but there are more markings on the underside of the receiver I believe.

I believe you're right, the safety and notch in the side of the stock is a giveaway for the Type 1's.

I hope that all prior service Marines have been properly notified that they are required by Law to
actually shoot all WW2 Japanese Rifles on a regular basis after the rifle clears the armory.

I see brass case reformations in your future.

I took a Type 99, a Type 44 and a Garand to show my neighbors father-in-law, he was USMC on Bouganville, Okinawa and a Gunny with Chesty Puller at the Chosen.

His words when he saw the Type 99, "one of MY favorite rifles to shoot (at the rifle club in Oakland post war, I think) and he had a DEEP respect for their accuracy especially when getting shot at!"

Of course he couldn't put the Garand down without going through the Manual of Arms and proper Stack Arms procedure!
