Isn't that a JAP Arisaki rifle?
Because if you hit em right it vaporizes them

I agree 100%. In this day and age, I would never cut up/modify a piece of WWII history. The cost of good gunsmithing now days would make it a very expensive gun in the end anyway. At the time, people could get them dirt cheap and labor was affordable. An off the shelf moderately priced hunting rifle is probably better than the best that you could hope for with one of these conversions. In the late 40's and early 50's many guys were time rich and penny poor.
Before you go to customizing your Arisaka, you should check with someone who could appraise it's value. Some of those WW2 Arisaka are worth a lot of money in original condition. You should be able to find Arisaka collectors on the web. Once you re-chamber or restock or modify in any way it will loose it's collector value.
