The Type 44 Cavalry Rifle(?????Yonyon-shiki kiju or Yonjuyon-shiki kiju) is a Japanese bolt-action rifle. This rifle is also often referred to as a Type 44 Carbine. It was a development of the Arisaka Type 38 Cavalry Rifle, the main difference being the bayonet is a needle type and it can be folded backwards and locks underneath the barrel. The Type 44 also included a compartment in the buttstock for which to store a unique 2-piece cleaning rod. The cleaning rod storage compartment was accessed via an ingenious rotating door.
