It appears you have a 6.5mm Arisaka Type 38 Infantry rifle.
It chambers 6.5 Jap.
This is 6.5x50SR Semi-Rimmed.
This is the long Type 38 Rifle. Not the carbine.
It has refinished wood which severely lowers the collector value.
The Mum is ground off which is not unusual.
These rifles are worth more with the mum intact.
You are missing the cleaning rod which is about $25 for a repro.
Your rifle has very good metal which is refinished as well.
With original finish it would be in the $150 to $199 range.
Refinshed your $80 is about right.
A nice rifle non the less.
These are one of the strongest actions made.
It is foolish and wrong to mourn the men who died. Rather we should thank God that such men lived.
