Click on images for enlarged versions.

serial #38151, 7.7 Arisaka, 25" barrel with a bright excellent bore. The metal surfaces of this 23rd series rifle retain 93% original blue with some light pitting on bolt handle and dust cover, light freckling and fading on the exposed edges. The Asian hardwood stock rates very good plus as lightly refinished with an added varnish, a partially faded Kanji stamp behind the lower tang, a light chip near buttplate and a few light handling marks. The Chrysanthemum is fully intact and all serialized parts are matching including the dustcover. This rifle includes a cleaning rod, an original leather sling which has white Japanese markings and an unmarked monopod that appears to be similar to Nagoya made monopods. The rear band is loose and the action is not sitting right in the wood which may require attention to fix. A fine example of an early Kokura Type 99 Arisaka. (208879-16) {C&R} (500/700) SOLD FOR $747.50
