Hey this Is My First Post I Never Noticed We Had A Fourm Here Before,So My Uncle Is Wanting To Trade Me A 6.5x50 Jap Rifle, It Has No Markings, But On The Buttstock it Says Rajer. That Is the Only name Or Marks On The gun it is A Bolt Action Mauser type. He Is Wanting me To trade my Taurus Pt-92 9mm To It, And I Cant Find Nothing On This rifle At All. But From What I Have Read About The 6.5x50 Round Sounds good I Just Need More Info On the Gun. Rajer Is A Arabic Name So Maybe that Will Help And Any Inputt Will Be Great Thanks.

Ok I Did Some Research And This Is What I came Up With

    Without knowing the condition of the rifle, and how it has been sporterized, ( if any), it would difficult it give you advice on the trade.

    It's been my experience in the past though, that commercial handguns have a much greater value on the resale market. Then reworked/sportized military rifles.

    With A Little More Research I Have This Rifle To Be A Arisaka model 38 Early War Rifle. It Has some Custom Work Looks Like With The Fajen Stock Not Rajer As I Posted eariler, That Is The Only Markings On The Gun Except For The Lyman Sights That Are Labled. It Seems To Be A Good Built Gun And Is In Very Good Shape If Anybody Knows What The Value Would Be That Would Be Great Because I Dont Wanna Trade my Pistol To A Cheap Rifle/

    Have you checked out the price and availability of 6.5 Jap ammunition?

    What would you do with the rifle?
    What have you been doing with the pistol?

    FAJEN IS THE MAKER OF THE STOCK, AS A SPORTERIZED (BUBBADISED?) JAP.
    AT BEST IT'S WORTH $200 (PROBABLY 1/2 THAT).

    The Arisakas are good hunting in the rain rifles except the 6.5 doesn't have the chrome bore of the 7.7mm.
    I wouldnt make the trade.
