Japanese Type 99 Rifle

Nagoya Arsenal Series 2

with AA Rear Sight

in 7.7x58 Jap

 

This is an very nice mid-war rifle with about 90% blue left. The mum has been ground off as typical of the majority of these rifles. The stock is very clean with almost no dents or dings. It appears to have been stripped of the red varnish these were usually finished with but if any sanding was done it was very light. The buttstock joint is sound. The bore is not chrome lined but it is in excellent condition, about 9+/10. The bolt is not matched to the receiver but all the parts of the bolt match. It has the early knurled safety knob. This one has the anti-aircraft rear sight and the early style front sight.

This is rifle is from my personal collection. Thinning out the herd a bit.

I found information on the web about making 7.7 Jap cases from 30-06 shells. It works and I use the same load data as for the British .303 ammo. I do keep the pressures on the lower side to be safe.

Overall an excellent example and would make a good shooter or addition to any collection.

The pictures will tell you more. Contact me if you need pictures of something I missed.
