Arisaka 99 can you tell me what I have?

Post by Buickgsman »

Hi all, new to the forum. I recently acquired an Arisaka rifle from a good friend. I did a little looking around but quite honestly I haven't gotten very far. I'm a 1911 guy and there seems to be many ins and outs with the rifles. Can anyone give me a quick rundown of what I have? I know it's a Arisaka 99, and may be early? Any thoughts are appreciated. Thanks!

Type 99 possibly, early war model. If you are able to post better photos of the right side of the receiver, we'll be able to tell you more based off the markings. Looks like the bayonets been refinished. The sling and bayonet frog appear to be repos as well, but originals are rare and big $$$.

Meant to post pics a few weeks ago but September was just a busy month. Here are some more pics. Any help in identifying what I have is appreciated.
