Mine did not. The mum was partially scratched off, missing the cleaning rod and bolt cover, and the anti-aircraft sight swing out wings were taken off. A true combat rifle. Dad's destroyer was on call fire support for the Marines on Saipan. They received a call for fire support, so his destroyer (USS Gridley) and the USS Maury fired support for twelve hours. After the invasion was over and the fleet was at Ulithi Atoll fleet anchorage, a Marine colonel and gunnery sgt. came aboard and dropped off two bags of souvenirs. Both contained Arasaka rifles, both in 7.7mm and 6.5mm as well as Nambu pistols, flags,helmets, bayonets, and badges. Dad picked out the 7.7mm with bayonet, and brought it back home. -Lloyd

Mine still has those, although as of yet I still haven't hit a dove using them.

We just picked up 'Type 38' Arisaka in 6.5mm at a local show. It's in ok shape for the age, Later 1930's based on the arsenal and SN. It has matching numbers and a clean bore.

I bought some ammo and ordered some reloading supplies. The trigger is a little firm for my hunting tastes, but my Son really likes the rifle & history. The 'MUM' is ground.

We shot two rounds on the backyard range. I plan to load the 120 grain Sierra Prohunter bullet. Not sure if I'll ever use it for deer since I have a lot of better choices available.

Thanks from BadGnus

Pull the butt plate on the Swiss 81. There should be a spare firing pin underneath the butt plate.
