The Type 30 Arisaka was a box fed bolt action repeating rifle. It was the standard Japanese rifle from 1899 to 1905. It was in Japanese service between 1899 and 1945. During World War I, it was used by the Royal Navy as part of the Anglo-Japanese Alliance. Some of these rifles were given to Russia as aid, and thus were used by Finland and Estonia after the collapse of the Russian Empire.
