I have recently come into position of a sporterized 6.5 Arisaka. Before you ask yes, unfortunately the chrysanthemum has been ground off. The wepon is in desperate need for TLC and a few new parts. Well alot of new parts. I am attempting to restore it to it's original form from what it currently is in. Any one have any advice, web sites for parts, or just general feelings about this wepon?

I'm not sure if I will be able to get the wepon into a state where I'll be able to actually fire it again but would love to try.

Any help or advice is greatly needed and appreciated.

Rather than spend a bundle of money trying to bring that one back I would look for another that hadn't been messed with. It will be cheaper.

I would agree BC unless the fella just likes that kind of challenge

Here we go found one in auction I myself would not go more than $175 if that I seen some with Mums go for 275-400 recently and wish I had paid more attention.

Honestly I think the challenge is what is keeping me from saying it's better as a ball bat. I know it's not gonna be cheep and I'm planning this as a few year project honestly. It was a friend of mine who's grandfather brought it back. He didnt have interest in it but I thought it maybe a decent practice to see if gunsmithing is a "hobby" I'd like to get into.

My uncle brought one back from WW2. He had a local smith turn it into a sporting rifle and I shot my first White Tail with it.
My brother sold it when he thought I'd ben killed in VN.

I finally got another a couple of years ago but haven't shot it, ammo is a lot of money.
