"JAPANESE TYPE 99 PARATROOPER RIFLE. SN 71336. Cal. 7.7 Jap. This is a type "0" paratrooper rifle with the first type takedown. It has 25-1/2" bbl with standard front sight, anti-aircraft rear sight and monopod. The paratrooper conversion is rather crude with a heavy faceted reinforcement over receiver ring and crude metal work that is riveted to the forestock. The takedown is simple, by pushing the spring loaded catch on bottom of front of receiver to the rear and rotating the bbl about 45 degrees which allows the interrupted threads to release the forward section. Receiver has the Kokura stamp with a Naval anchor on top flat of the reinforcement which is without the Imperial Chrysanthemum and has a sheet metal dust cover. Bolt handle is unusual with a welded egg-shaped knob with a knurled band. Mounted in a 2-pc laminated mahogany stock with sling swivels on left side. The takedown parts are numbered "336" corresponding to the last three digits of the serial number. Accompanied by a Kokura marked bayonet with steel scabbard & leather frog and olive canvas sling. PROVENANCE: Stern Collection. CONDITION: Very good, all matching including bolt. Little orig finish remains being mostly a gray/brown patina with some black paint remaining on takedown iron. Stock has a crack on left side above floorplate, otherwise is sound with myriad small nicks & dings. Mechanics are fine, bright shiny bore. Bayonet is fine. 4-34095 JR7 (3,000-5,000)"
