Japanese Arisaka 30 bolt action training rifle. This is a Koishikawa (Toyko) no series "hook safety" training rifle. The "mum", type numbers and original serial number have been neatly removed, with the receiver ring marked with three Japanese characters which signify "Blank Ammunition Only". It has a smooth bore designed to use 6.5mm blanks (not for firing standard ammunition), mismatched numbers, late issue ladder-type rear sight, and an inverted "V" front sight without the ears. Has an original blue patina metal finish. The original two-piece wood stock (with acceptance stamps) and handguard show typical dents, dings, and scrapes from service. Approximately 10,000 type 30 rifles were reworked at some unknown time into smooth bore training rifles. This rifle was originally manufactured between the years 1897 to 1904, C&R eligible, and is in overall good condition.
Rifle appears functional, however, because of conversion to blank firing/ training rifle only, sold as a Gunsmith Special, AS IS, No Returns, Used.
