The color striping on the type 44 is so exotic.. Is that the normal wood color ?? Or was that Artificially done..??

Any chance of posting a photo of the take down rifle broken down???

Oh Need I ask, NICE LOOKING RIFLES...

Thanks everyone. I, would say the color on the Type 44 is artificially done (sort of a camo job)
I, will post breakdown photos on the Type 99 2, as soon as i, can.
Thanks everyone

Very Nice... I see the threading on the end of the take down bolt handle.. Does that handle screw in after you push in the lock..

It looks pretty solid...

Many thanks

The handle with the ring, does screw in!! That is the key, to the rifles locking system.
The rifle handles loads, and shoots the same as any other type 99.

Many thanks for the extra time there.. Never seen one broken down in person.. Very nice..

I wonder what the in the day cost was to make this rifle over a normal Japanese rifle ???? I do wonder if it was worth it considering how many times the Japanese used Paratroops in WW II
