Welcome and congratulations on a good find.
Over here in the Netherlands you don't see many Arisaka's.
Most WW1 and 2 rifles you find on a range are German and Swedish Mausers, British Lee Enfields, Mosin Nagants(mostly Finnish M-39) and American M1 carbine's, Garand's, P17's and Springfield 1903 A3's.
We call them "Veteran Rifles".

Personally I have never seen an Arisaka on a Dutch range.

Thanks for logging in antidote and I hope this will be the first of many posts.
Thanks for sharing.

Met vriendelijke groet,

Martin

Series one's are sort of hard to find, you have a nice one. Glad to see that Canada doses allow it citizens to own rifles. Our administration is determined to rid us of all guns. Then only the bad people will have them. I read an article the other day that said the shortage of ammo here is because the American people are arming themselves faster than the Manufactories can make ammo, not because the Gov. is buying all of it. That made me feel better.

Japanese rifles are very strong, but I'd keep the ammo intact. Type 99's are very nice shooters as well.
