Japanese Type 99 #1
Toyo Kogyo Arsenal (1939-1945)
Matching bolt, No Mum
in 7.7 x 58
This is a very nice early war
rifle. It has the early chrome lined bore which is in
excellent condition. These were the first military rifles to
have a chrome bore. Great idea in the tropics and with
corrosive primers. The bolt numbers match the receiver on
this one. The bolt face and the magazine follower are very
clean and the gun appears to be unfired. The Mum is ground
off but the rest of the metal has 95+% of the original
bluing left. The front sight is the early version with the
side guards. The cleaning rod is the short type. The wood is
in very good/excellent condition with a few typical dents
and dings but no cracks or chips. The rifle has the anti
aircraft sight but the wings have been removed. This rifle
has not been taken apart since it left the arsenal as the
locking punches next to the three action bolts have not been
disturbed. There are no import marks.
Overall a very nice, clean rifle that
would be a good shooter and an excellent addition to any collection.
