Japanese Type 99 #2
Toyo Kogyo Arsenal (1939-1945)
Anti Aircraft sight, No Mum
in 7.7 x 58
This is a very nice early war
rifle. It has the 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 do not 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 good condition with typical dents and dings but no cracks
or chips. The nicest and rare feature on this rifle is that
it still has the anti aircraft sight intact with the wings.
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
Overall a very nice, clean rifle that
would be a good shooter and an excellent addition to any collection.
