Hey guys, got this chinese 6-5 infantry rifle but it looks like it's on rough shape. Take a look at the pictures for condition. The follower and trigger housing are altered and look like Bubba did something to it. Any idea why? Are these rifles rare? Cheers.

that was originally a 6.5 infantry rifle, that has been modified to typical (chinese) short rifle configuration, and converted to 7.62x39 if the trigger guard housing and follower modifications are for that rifle. Frank can clarify, I'm sure he'll be along later... They are uncommon, but mostly just not recognized for what they are. Thanks for posting. Trey

I didn't pay to much for that old Arisaka, I just bought it a little bit too soon!
