Back in the day, these Arisaka bolt actions were proven stronger than the Mauser 98 in blow up tests with over loaded cartridges.

Dad brought back a 6.5mm version(type 38)from the South Pacific after WWll. A beast. Almost spear length with the bayonet. Heavy metal butt cap. The action real loose so you could still work it with dirt/sand in it. I cleaned it up and found some modern ammo to fit it from Norma Co.:"6.5-Jap". With a long-heavy bullet it didn't seem beastly at all when it was fired. Reminded me of a 30-30 carbine. Didn't seem to have much muzzle energy. Supposed to be a very accurate rifle.
The 7.62mm came latter(type 99) in the war, with a better sight more fire power.

I'm almost certain that is a 7.7. That looks like the aviation rear sight base (probably the most expensive part.) I have one that was rechambered in 300 Savage. Real fun gun to shoot.

    One of my uncles (served in,... and was seriously wounded....Iwo Jima, as a 'SeaBee") brought home several Japanese weapons....I remember at least two rifles, as well as a hand gun, and some knives. I'll have to check with my cousin, and get some pix , and info.  Another uncle (European Theater) "gifted " me a Walther p-38, before he passed. I really regret not asking more questions of, and listening more closely, to, those guys !
