I believe I have an arisaka weapon from ww2.  If I sent u a pic of the markings could u tell me what I have?


The Crown over the PB is a Beretta symbol.  You most likely have a Type "I" rifle.  Beretta made these rifles for the Japanese Navy before World War 2.  
If you have an image of the complete rifle it would help.  Please check the below links as they may also help.

Thank You
