Arisaka Model 38 value
I ran across a really nice Tokyo Arsenal, Arisaka Mod. 38 the other day and need advice as to value. No pictures but it has good wood, good metal and a nice bore. The only problem I can see is that the bottom portion of the butt is separating at the seam on one side. The pluses are that the mum is intact; it has the bolt cover ( I've never seen one with both); and the correct bayonet. It is the nicest one I've seen. Blue Book says a 90% gun is worth $300. The few that are on Gun Broker are not as nice as this one and the closest ones range from $350 to over $500. I don't know what they are selling for. He's asking $450 and I may get him to come down some. Any help or advice would be appreciated.
