Seller's Description

Guns For Sale - WWII Japanese Arisaka Type 99 -- With Mum, 7.7 MM Bolt Action Rifle - C&R OK

LSB#: 120622GS01

Make: Arisaka

Model: Type 99

Serial Number: 55971

Year of Manufacture: Wartime Production

Caliber: 7.7 Japanese

Action Type: Bolt Action, Internal Magazine

Markings: The left side of the receiver is marked with a symbol that could be “32” preceding the serial number, then the mark for “Koshikawa or Kokura” arsenal, and “4” after the arsenal mark. The top of the receiver ring is marked “Type 99” in Japanese characters. The mum is intact and not defaced but is worn down a bit. The number “971” is found on the flat under the bolt handle, and on the bayonet lug. There is no number on the extractor but it looks original to the rifle.

Barrel Length: Approx. 25 ½”

Sights / Optics: This rifle is mounted with standard military sights. The front sight is a protected post in a dovetail slot, the rear sight is a ladder sight without anti aircraft wings.

Stock Configuration & Condition: The stocks are smooth military wood. The wood looks like it has been cleaned at some point. There are many dings and gouges including several heavy marks including one just ahead of the left side finger groove, then on the right side of the stock at the finger groove, and the left side of the buttstock below the sling swivel. There are no visible cracks . The LOP measures approx. 12 ½” from the trigger to the back of the steel buttplate. The stocks rate in about Fair overall condition.

Type of Finish: Military Blue

Finish Originality: All Original

Bore Condition: The bore is dull and the rifling is sharp and deep. There is some minor erosion in the grooves toward the receiver. This is a good shootable bore.

Overall Condition: This rifle retains about 40% of its metal finish. The balance of the finish shows mostly gray with some areas of finish loss at the rear sight and on the barrel before the receiver ring. The receiver ring itself shows wear and surface erosion at the top of the MUM. The receiver and bolt have light surface erosion. The Screw heads are serviceable, most are sharp but some show use and minor disfiguration. The markings are clear (if you are fluent in Katakana and Congi). Overall, this rifle rates in about Fair to Good condition.

Mechanics: The action functions correctly. We did not fire this rifle.

Box, Paperwork & Accessories: None, there is no cleaning rod present.

Our Assessment: This is a good representative example of a WWII era Japanese Arisaka. The rifle functions correctly, the bore is good and the Mum is intact.

CA Legal or CA Private Party Transferable: This C&R rifle can be transferred in California.

Questions for Users
(Public)   
    Q:  Hi, Just a "FYI", I believe that this is a "24th" series KOKURA rifle. There were several changes in this series, the seriel number is proper to include the "Large square recoil Lug" in the mid section of the series. If matching, it would be a scarce part of the series, FOR a series collector. Regards, iwojima 08/29/2012
        A:  Great Sir! thank you for the help, Spencer 08/30/2012
