Tanaka Type44 Carbine Ver.2 Gray Steel Gas Rifle
The Type 38 rifle was a bolt-action rifle that supplemented the Type 99 Japanese standard infantry rifle during the Second World War. The design was adopted by the Imperial Japanese Army in 1905 (the 38th year of the Meiji period, hence "Type 38") and served from then until the end of 1945.
The Type 44, similar to the Type 38 carbine, the cavalry carbine is almost entirely different from the middle band forward with an under-folding bayonet, metal nosecap, stacking hook to the left side of the nosecap and wide front sight guards. This model was introduced in 1911. There are three variations of this rifle. Each variation based entirely on the nosecap size and the spacing of the nosecap screws. They have a unique storage compartment in the buttstock for a cleaning rod
The replica from Tanaka is ultra realistic and plays an incredible homage to the original rifle fielded during its service period. The real wood has rich patterning and the steel blends nicely into the wood and you instantly feel like you are holding a piece of history in your hands. Operation is smooth and Tanaka has always boasted consistent FPS and realistic trigger feel and bolt action.
Internally the rifle is based off of the same tried and test systems featured in their other rifles such as the KAR 98k.
