"JAPANESE TYPE 97 SNIPER RIFLE. SN 10521. 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 and scope do not match. The rifle is equipped with an orig sling, with "Kentucky Kid" scratched on the inside, and is cracked and dried. With the exception of the above noted, everything on the rifle matches and eye piece is present on the scope. PROVENANCE: Stern Collection. CONDITION: Receiver retains approximately 98% of orig finish with the exception of where the Mum is ground, which is bare metal. Bbl retains approximately 85% of the blue with some bare spots on the top where it appears somebody improperly cleared off rust. Front bbl band and bayonet assembly show better than 98% blue as does front sight assembly. Middle band shows slightly less finish, being about 90%. Scope shows approximately 90% black enamel which it was painted and rubber eye piece is present although extremely dry. Triggerguard and floorplate assembly show better than 90% blue. Buttstock is in very good condition with only minor nicks and bruises, the most significant would be up on the left side of the bbl approximately 3" behind bbl band. The rest of the stock has relatively minor bruising but is one of the most pleasant that I have observed. Scope optics are fairly clear with just a little bit of peppering on front lens that might come off with cleaning. Overall a really nice and hard to find Jap. 4-34064 BK114 (3,000-5,000)"
