Japanese Garand Rifle

Presented by the NRA National Firearms Museum

.Japan's wartime production of semi-automatic rifles was restricted to experimental and prototype models. Shortly before the war's end, the Imperial Navy produced the Type 5 rifle, a 7.7mm caliber copy of the American M1 Garand which featured a 10-round box magazine rather than the M1's 8-round en bloc clip. These were also manufactured in extremely limited numbers; perhaps as few as one hundred were produced. Limited resources and shortages of suitable arms caused some of the earlier prototypes to be committed to combat. The Japanese Garand can be seen at the NRA National Firearms Museum in Fairfax, Virginia.

Intended for use in World War II, this 10-shot repeater was a direct copy of the U.S. M1 Garand.
