I thought this rifle was made by the Italians for the Japanese.
That is correct the Type I was produced for the Japanese Imperial Navy and was never used by the the Italian army.

After a lot of reading I would like to shoot it some time. I suspect it has seen action because it has a notch taken from the stock. Maybe I will fire it one day but who knows... It is missing a few things I am looking for.
It NEEDS... A butt plate, bayonet, Clip/s and a cleaning rod. PM me
Most of these did not see action because they were issued to the Navy and that is why many Type I's are found in excellent condition. You really only need a buttplate and your rifle would be ready to go to the range and as I posted in your other thread it appears that a m1891 Carcano buttplate will fit.
