The Type 4 Rifle (Japanese: 四式自動小銃 Yon-shiki jidousyoujyuu) was a copy of the American M1 Garand but with an integral 10-round magazine and chambered for the Japanese 7.7×58mm Arisaka cartridge. Where the Garand used an en-bloc clip, the Type 4's integral magazine was charged with two 5-round stripper clips and the rifle also used Japanese style tangent sights. The Type 4 had been developed alongside several other experimental semi-automatic rifles. However, none of the rifles entered into service before the end of World War II, with only 250 being made and many others were never assembled. There were several problems with jamming and feed systems, which also delayed its testing.

It appears in Battlefield 1942 where it is referred as Type 5. Ingame, unlike Garand, you can reload it in the middle of magazine and there is no clip sound of course. Hit rate is better and power is inferior compared to Garand. In FHSW, it appears on some late war maps, like Battle Over Hokkaido or Wake Night.
