"JAPANESE MODEL 97 SNIPER RIFLE. SN 9475. Cal. 6.5 mm. The Type 97 sniper rifle is basically a Japanese type 38 rifle with a side mounted 2.5 power telescope. They were introduced in 1937. The telescope were mounted at the factory and stamped with the SN of the rifle (number on this scope does not match SN). This is a very good specimen condition-wise even though the bayonet, dust cover and scope do not match. With the exception of the above noted, everything on the rifle matches. Mum is ground and rubber eye piece is missing. Scope case included. PROVENANCE: Stern Collection. CONDITION: Receiver retains 85% of the blue, turning plum, with the exception of the area where the Mum is ground. Dust cover and bolt assembly retain better than 95% of their blue. The bbl shows well, retaining 95% of its orig blue with a couple of very slight rub marks at the wood line and just a little around the muzzle. Bbl bands show better than 90% of their orig finish as does the triggerguard and floorplate assembly. Telescope and mount retain better than 90% of enamel finish with all lettering very legible and clear optics. Bayonet is in good condition through the front half has been sharpened.
