We love WWII era guns! Just arrived is a wonderful example of a last ditch Japanese Type 99 7.7mm rifle. This baby has that last ditch rough wood stock with a block metal rear peep sight and block front wedge sight. There is no mum present on the receiver, and it may have never had a mum. The metal is a phosphate type arsenal finish, and the barrel bands are the rough stamped metal. The front band is coated with black paint. The chrome lined bore is excellent with solid rifling. The action is typical Japanese Arisaka. The bolt and extractor match, but it is not matching to the receiver. The two piece stock has many handling marks, but there are no cracks in it or the wooden butt plate. Something interesting to note about this rifle are the little, worn hash marks on the underside of the butt stock, next to the tang. You will have to use your own imagination for that one. This really is an interesting piece of history and would make a nice addition to a WWII collection. This is C&R friendly with a copy of your drivers license. Buy with confidence!
