The Type 4 was an experimental semi-automatic rifle copied from the American M1 Garand for use by the Japanese Navy.
The Type 4 made use of a similar long-stroke gas piston system with a rotating bolt like the M1 Garand. It was aesthetically very similar, although it chambered 7.7x58mm Arisaka rather than .30-06 and fed from a 10-round internal magazine fed by stripper clips.
Although the Japanese had experimented with the concept of a semi-automatic rifle before the outbreak of the war in China - namely the Czech ZH-29 and a number of designs inspired by John D. Pedersen's toggle-lock action - it had never formally adopted one to replace its bolt-action Arisaka rifles.
Approximately 250 Type 4 rifles were produced by the Yokosuka Naval Arsenal from 1944 to 1945 intended for use by Japan's naval infantry. As many as 130 rifles may have seen combat, but all of the known examples today were unissued.
