Twist Rate on Japanese Arisaka Type 38

Hello there,
I've been trying to find the twist rate of a Type 38 Japanese Arisaka.
It is a 6.5x50mm rifle I had re chambered for 6.5x55mm Swedish.

I know I can probably do the old cleaning rod/count the turns trick, but I typically get erroneous results. Does anyone actually have documented data?

Also Lyman 46th edition says:- Japanese service carbine, 19" Barrel, 1-9" Twist.
