** Tokyo Arsenal Type 99 Ariska Rifle with Full-Mum and Matching Numbers

7.7mmm. 26" barrel length. SN: 42968. Blued finish with a laminated Asian hardwood stock. Clear chrysanthemum (mum) and "Type 99" kanji on receiver. Matching serial numbers on receiver, bolt, bayonet lug and dust cover. Missing folding wire monopod. Retains long range rear sight with folding anti-aircraft extension arms, single swivels, cleaning rod and dust cover. A difficult gun to find with a crisp mum and matching numbers, particularly a matching dust cover which is a part that is almost always missing.


Very good. Retains much of the blue which is thinning and slightly worn, with some scattered surface oxidation and a more heavily oxidized butt plate with surface corrosion. Mechanically functional, very good bore. Stock with moderate wear, scattered bumps, dings and mars.
