Arisaka type 38 VS Arisaka type 99 VS Springfield M1903A1
Many times have I asked people what they prefer, and it is almost always the type 38 that receives all the praise. I personally would choose the Springfield for its "HOLY CHRIST! 18 INCHES?!" bayonet, among other things. I never really use the type 99 because the sights are obstructive. From what I can tell, It seems slightly less accurate that the 38.

So what do you guys prefer?

Type 38 it sounds and feels nice.
Springfield feels wonky and sounds ♥♥♥♥ty.

Edit: Type 99 is also nice but the sights are ♥♥♥♥.

Of those three I prefer the type 99. It doesn't feel as nice as the 38 and I kind've hate its sight - but once you get used to it you'll find its accuracy and stopping power are great :)

The standard Springfield is probably my least favourite primary weapon in Rising Storm, its iron sights just don't work for me D:

The difference in stopping power versus the difference in accuracy I pick stopping power so I go with the Type99. Can't really say I have that much experience with the Springfield.

I like 99 because of stopping power, and I prefer its sight more than 38.

I cant say anything about american weapons, since beta i played american side only few times. American team is always full.

I actually like the type99, and love its sights

I don't see anything wrong with the Springfield's sights. In fact, I prefer them!

I'm going to get in game and reevaluate the Springfield. I don't quite see how it is wonky and I think the sights are fine. If I can still get 100 meter kills no problem, then it's just an aesthetic problem you guys have.

Oh damn. I confused the 38 and the 99. I going to edit my posts.

I didnt say that its bad at all i just think that i found it not so good for myself also kills on 100m not a big deal with every weapon.

Type 38.... faster round and looks cooler. I hate the irons on 99... not enough visibility, too much tunnel vision.

Springfield sights are just terrible and it recoils too much. The 38 lighter faster, easy recoil round is much more effective to reload and kill.

IDK, guys. I still like my Springfield. I suppose the 38 is an over all better rifle, but I will always love my Springfield <3

Type 99 first and foremost, I like to be able to down a man with a body shot, plus it looks cleaner and I like the sights, even if the monopod seems totally useless.

But springfield any day over the other three RS rifles. Still has stopping power, the sound is great, the sights aren't bad at all, and a little recoil on a bolt action never hurt anyone. If fact, if you're firing so fast that you aren't allowing time for the recoil to finish, you're doing it wrong. At least it doesn't sound or feel like a pea shooter...looking at you, 38 and M1.
