6.5mm Arisaka chambered pistol

    This pistol, chambered in 6.5x50mm Arisaka, was purportedly found in a South Vietnamese rice paddy. I cannot tell if the photo it is real or a fake. The front sight is far to low, unless there is a hole drilled into that metal block above the chamber.

    [ Many thanks to Sven (Defense and Freedom) for emailing me the the info. ]
