    Hello, so I have a couple rifles left down to me and I’m unsure what they are. I’ll start with the first one. Any help is appreciated. Nevermind the modern strap. The rifle itself appears to be rather old.

    I was told by a fellow member this too is likely a Japanese Arisaka, but just longer than the other rifle I posted. Does anybody have any knowledge of that? Did they make these things different lengths?

    Arisaka?

    Not with a open rear receiver ring. Looks more like a Greek 1903 or similar Mannlicher type action.

    greek or Italian.
    or made by Germany for the Italians.

    the back of the bolt should tell the tale, there should also be writing on the receiver.

    Any markings on receiver or barrel? Should be something. Sure looks military. Hope you find out for sure as milsurp rifles are going for some good money these days.
