|These are 4 Arisaka rifles. The top one is the 21C type 38, straight from the package. The next two down are a cut down 44 inch version. the final one is the April 1945 auto version with the banana clip.|
These are reference shots from various books that show the difference in
Book 1 and Book 1b show the standard Arisaka type 38 and 99, in various lengths. type 38x3 shows the same, in black and white.
|This photo shows the type 38/99 with a sniper scope, one of the only shots I know of that shows this detail.|
|An extra bonus, this book shows what the Normal US sniper scope looked like on a Springfield 1903, rather than the long Unertl scope in the Pacific Weapons set.|
