The Japanese word, 'Ariska', means "You better start Reloading" in English.

Fortunately, the 7.7 Jap. is a very easy caliber to roll.

I was kinda shocked to see it sold for $6,900 but I did not know of the rare variant with interrupted lugs instead of the more common locking wedge type. I paid less than a thousand for a mismatched locking wedge years ago and probably paid too much for the time.

I bought my Type 2 last year off Gunbroker. It was a little over $1500 and now I see they are sitting north of $2000. Great addition to my Arisaka collection. I buy my ammo online. Target Sports USA sells boxes for a bit over a dollar a round.

Below are some photos I just took after seeing this thread. The gun is about as clean as I can get it. The issue with mine is with the wedge that connects the two halves. If I tighten the wedge in place with the "D ring screw cap" all the way, the wedge gets stuck to a point that the only way to get behind it and tap it out is to disassemble the sheet metal cover and pry it off.

I thought of many ways to try to fix the rifle, but in the end, I decided to leave it alone. I have a reminder attached to the D ring in case someone other than myself is holding the rifle.

At the range, it's one round at a time with the wedge in place held by a finger.

The gun is literally a Type 99 cut in two and it behaves just like that. Remember that the Japanese named their guns after the year they were manufactured. Except their years were based on the age of the Emperor. So the Type 2 followed the 30, 38, 44, 99, then on to the 2.

Last week on Gunbroker there was a bubba'd one that was converted to a 30.06 with at different stock. Not too much of a conversion due to the 7.7 mm Jap round being similar to a .30 cal.

I was interested in it but am getting limited on safe space. Still looking for a Type 30 that wasn't converted into a de-rifled trainer.

Except a .30 caliber bullet will rattle around in a 7. 7 bore like a horse turd in a post hole.

In theory-yes. In the real world-not always-usually not. The bores vary in diameter-not as bad as Mosin-Nagants-but not as precise as '03 Springfields.

This was one of the Trial Rifles and pretty rare, only a hand full made / converted. The production run was a few thousand.

Here is a worthless bit of trivia, in the movie "The Deadly Tower" (1975) - Kurt Russell uses a sporterized Type 2 Paratrooper instead of the 6mm Remington 700 (among the other weapons he used). http://www.imfdb.org/wiki/Deadly_Tower,_The

Come to think of it, it was used in the Manchurian Candidate (1962) too. http://www.imfdb.org/wiki/Manchurian...te,_The_(1962))
