    Type 30 carbine
    Type 35 rifle
    Type 38 rifle
    Type 38 cavalry rifle
    Type 38 carbine
    Type 38 sniper rifle (rare)
    Type 38 paratrooper rifle (rare)
    Type 44 carbine
    Type 97 sniper rifle
    Type I rifle (manufactured by Italy, bought by Japanese Navy)
    Contract Czech CZ-24 rifle (bought by Japanese Army for use in China)
    Manchurian Model 98 Mauser rifle (made by Japanese for use in China)
    Type 99 long rifle
    Type 99 standard rifle
    Type 99 sniper rifle
    Type 99 Naval special rifle
    Type 100 paratrooper rifle (rare)

    If you really want to learn abour Japanese rifles, buy a copy of Honeycutt's "Military Rifles of Japan". That will be the best $42 you ever spent.
