JAPANESE TYPE 99 SNIPER RIFLE. SN 7990. Cal. 7.7MM. This Nogoya arsenal produced type 99 was the favorite sniper rifle of the Japanese in the Pacific during the second WW. It is equipped with the 4 X 7 telescope (no rubber eye piece present) and bayonet. Dust cover is present but does not match. Scope case included. PROVENANCE: Stern Collection. CONDITION: Rifle is in good plus condition retaining most of its orig finish and has no significant abuse at all. Receiver (Mum is ground) retains approximately 90% of its blue with the significant wear being from the ground Mum and the dust cover sliding into position. Dust cover and matching bolt retains approximately 80% to 85% finish. Bbl assembly as well as front and middle bands show better than 90% orig finish and front band does match. Triggerguard and floorplate assembly show better than 90% orig finish with blue on floorplate beginning to get a little thin. Telescope retains better than 95% of its orig black paint with nice clear optics with just the least little bit of debris. Buttplate assembly retains 90% of its blue with edge wear. Buttstock is better than average with sharp finger grooves and less dents and abuse than the average 99 although there is a small crack in the wrist of the stock that appears to be very easily repairable. Overall a pretty nice 99 sniper. Mechanics are crisp and bore is bright and shiny but does show moderate use. Bayonet is in excellent condition and scabbard may have been repainted. 4-34025 BK113 (3,400-5,400)
