Tokyo Juki Kogyo Series 37

Post by ShaneB »

I'm new to the forum, and figured I could add some of my rifle collection to the many posts here. First up is one of my favorite rifles. The Type 99 Arisaka is a wonderful rifle, and this one is a pretty nice example of one of the smaller arsenals that manufactured them.

That's one nice specimen worthy of an original sling.

I read somewhere that these were manufactured in two different lengths. I have a Type-99 as well but mine appears shorter than yours

I decided to upload a few pictures of my Tokyo Juki Kogyo Series 37 Arisaka rifle. It was a birthday present from my wife and still has an entact mum! I didn't realize it came from a smaller arsenal. Thanks for teaching me something today! The series symbol on my example is tough to read but I am positive it is a Series 37. If you disagree, please let me know. Thanks!

I would say your rifle is also a series 37, a little earlier is serial range than mine. What features does it still have? (AA Wings, Monopod, cleaning rod, dust cover) Is the rifle matching? Nice that it has an untouched mum, but I much prefer a bolt matching rifle myself. I measured my cleaning rod, it is the shorter Type 99/Type 2 Paratrooper 21 5/16 in length. It’s blue matches the rifle so think it came with the rifle from the factory, but curious to know if that’s been seen before?

My rifle is missing the AA Wings, Monopod, and Dust Cover. I do have a cleaning rod. The bolt is all matching! I'll upload some better pictures in the future. Also, I think our rifle's are the same length after all 😀

Nice that it’s all matching, can’t wait to see some more pictures of your rifle. I have a Nagoya series 4 rifle that I’m working on as a project with a matching bolt and full mum, but mismatched stock and other features that I’m slowly working on correcting. I’ll make a thread for it with pictures and post my progress as it goes sometime soon.

Were the stocks serialized? How would I know if my stock is mismatched or not?

Some of the stocks were serialized on the very early rifles on the inside of the wood, however I don't know if Tokyo Juki Kogyo did this. I wouldn't remove the stock if the screws are still stacked, as that damages the rifles value but staked screws also guarantee its the original stock. Easiest way to tell if its a correct stock is by the manufacturer stamps near the butt on the underside of the rifle. Each factory had inspection stamps they used and can tell where it came from. There are also defining characteristics of stocks for different arsenals along their different series of production. I know my Nagoya is in an incorrect stock because its a 4th series so it should have the square cleaning rod release and longer press in cleaning rod. Yet mine currently is a round release with a short style screw in cleaning rod, generally seen on 6th or 7th series Nagoya rifles from the books I have. I am on the hunt for the correct series stock for it to make it as correct as possible. Found another picture for my rifle, shows the bolt apart with the matching numbers.
