Hop Through History: Firing the Japanese WWII Arisaka Type 44 Carbine [VIDEO]

The Arisaka type 44 carbine served during World War Two. And boy is it one heck of a gun to shoot. 

This battle rifle of the Japanese Empire is given a thorough range workout.

Hickok45 examines this classic G.I. war rifle.

The little Arisaka type 44 carbine was brought back by many American G.I.s who fought in World War Two. This little rifle could fit into a duffle bag a lot easier than the full-length infantry rifles.

How well do these short rifles shoot anyway? Hickok45 answers this question by shooting the vintage Arisaka rifle. He nails targets out at the back of his gun range with ease.

This Japanese rifle can still shoot quite straight. It is quite the collectible from a past era.
