    the monopad attaches to the middle band, not the nose cap

    I never recommend SARCO to anyone for anything, there was a time it was a great place, when I lived up north I used to take a drive up there and spend the afternoon, when Smitty & Glenn were behind the counter those were the days.
    The last time I visited Sarco was 2yrs ago I was visitng family so I stopped in for parts they advertised, they came out with rusty junk & repro's junk

    sounds like you have a real late war rifle ( last Ditch), if it has a wood buttplate, the cleaning rod hole filled in and fixed sites I WOULD NOT SHOOT IT, but its your rifle and without a picture I can not tell

    Sprat and sprat1 are one and the same.

    Sprat, Ive never bought anything from sarco. I was just passing along what Ive seen on shotgun news. My arisaka has no hole for cleaning rod (I dont think its been filled in). still has the metal buttplate and fixed sights. Only reason I bought it was ive always wanted one and I thought for 100 bucks for a complete rifle wasnt too terribly overpriced, I just dont see them that often. I saw one at another swap meet missing the bolt and the guy wouldnt budge off 75 bucks and it looked like it was stored outside in the humidity. I dont plan on paying 37 bucks for 20 rounds. I just bought it to add to the collection. jim

    these guns do shoot beautifully, i know mine can keep up with my brand new remington 700. i was looking at sarco yesterday actually they seem to have some decent stuff so i may try them out with a cheaper item first to see how that goes.

    If grandpa did the conversion, show respect and leave it alone! If some one else did then maybe. The arisaka is one of if not "the" strongest action in history. You might consider finding a stock rifle and enjoy the sporter as is.

    Welcome too the forum kzchopper.
    I just picked one up...
    Closing the bolt on them, is like sealing a submarine hatch.
    Smooth but you damn sure know it is locked.
    The more I research these weapons, the more confusing it gets..
    Interesting weapon for sure.
