Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

Re: Type 99 Short Rifle cleaning rod

Thanks for the ideas. I don’t plan to ever clean the rifle with it. I just need it to complete the rifle. I would love the 24” one for my rifle but I have other priorities for my meter $. Thanks!!!!

Type 99 Short Rifle cleaning rod

There is a “WWII IJA JAPANANESE Type 99 Cleaning Rod” advertised on EBay for $18.71 from a seller called luckyline1945. Has anyone bought from him? He does not describe the length so I asked and he said “around 24””.. He says they are “field grade reproductions”. I’m looking for a repro but not sure...

capt14k that would be great.
Charles I saw the Chilean M95 on that site but not the 1912. I have a .17 cal cleaning I can stick in there. Great idea. Will compare that with what capt14k comes up with!!!! Thanks guys!!

1912 Chilean Mauser Short Rifle rechambered for7.62 NATO

Does anyone know the length of the cleaning rod for the above rifle? Also is it exactly interchangeable with any other rod. And, does anyone have a source for original or repro? Thanks to all.

Re: Is this an original sling for K98k

Interesting story about my first gun. I walked into an army surplus store well before age 18 and the guy had a barrel of never issued M48 rifles there for $35 each. He sold me one and let me pay him $5 a week. He let me take the rifle the first day and trusted me to comeback and pay. I had a he rifl...

Canvas quick detach sling for Type99

Does anyone have an online reference for Japanese rifle slings? I’ve seen reproductions for sale of a canvas sling with quick detach metal loop things. Does anyone have any knowledge on those? I’ve not heard of them before.Thanks.

Re: Is this an original sling for K98k

Old fart here too! A couple of thoughts about the strap and frosch: the color of each is pretty much the same darker brown color. You’ll see from my differing light sources they still look close to each other. The pebble grain on the frosch worries me. I’ve not seen that in other frosch pictures. I ...

Photographing Waffenamts etc????

I recently tried taking a few very close up pictures of my friend’s Mauser and JapaneseType 99 and was less than pleased with the results (to put it mildly). I took the pictures with a flashlight in one hand and iPhone 6S in the other. With my third hand, I tried to balance the rifle. You see my pro...

Is this an original sling for K98k

I would like to get everyone’s opinion on the sling that is on my friend’s 1939 Sauer und Sohn K98k Norwegian capture rifle. Is it an original? He knows that it’s been on the rifle since his father got the rifle in the 70s or early 1980s. I’m sorry for the poor pictures but my phone isn’t the best a...
