It looks like a last ditch Arisaka to me. Towards the end, they were pumping out Arisakas as fast as the could- wooden buttstocks and all.

This is most certainly a Carcano Type I rifle.

The Japanese didn't make a "last ditch" Type 30 rifle. The OP's pics do not show gas relief holes in the receiver. This is not a Type 99 rifle.

Co-worker needs help ID'ing Rifle

Larry is okay ... you just have to know what you're buying. I will tell you this - you can say what you want about what he offers, but aside from the occasional questionable merchandise he is as good a seller as they come.
