JAPANESE TYPE 99 SNIPER RIFLE. SN 3051. 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 4 X 7 telescope, bayonet, sling and air craft sights. Dust cover is present but does not match. Jap sniper rifles seldom found with this much condition.
