Arisaka rifle

Post by Static1911 »

Just recently picked up a Arisaka rifle. I believe it's a type 99 last ditch. The recoil lug is missing. Bought one off ebay, but it doesn't fit. Any suggestions on where I could locate one? Any information would be appreciated.

I have never removed one, but there are early and late versions on a Type 99. see this for a picture:

Parts are always getting hard to find. You may have to buy a cheep, chopped, sport cut Arisaka stock for the part. Most of the time the recoil stock bolt lug assy. is left on the stock. You might hunt eBay. I am not sure if each maker had slight variations. I would search out the same maker's stock to be sure the part is correct. Most likely a $15-20 part if found? Your rifle appears to be a Toyo Kogyo 1939-1945, possible series 35????
Did you buy a larger one and it did not fit?

Your stock is heavily sanded and refinished, maybe search out an intact finish Toyo Kogyo stock and restore it. Does the bolt still match?

I looked on ebay and only came across someone selling a lot of misc. part with in it,
its more rectangle then square. Not sure on the history of the rifle. Picked it off a collage student for $100.
All numbers are matching. Now i think about it the wood around the barrel is lose, so makes seance it has been sanded.
For the price id like to being it back to original. well much as possible.

Appreciate the feed back

The availability of stocks depend on the area you live in and if gun shows have Arisakas. In SE Wisconsin, about two years ago we had a few club members die off that collected Arisakas back in the 1960's when they were 10-25 bucks a rifle. So our gun shows were flooded with beat, mismatched , ground mum, bring backs that were basically good for the stocks or shooters that were priced at $150-200. Any intact good specimens went for fair market values. So if you see a rusty basement or attic dog, or a mismatched dog with a non refinished stock then you snap it up for the stock. But it depends on the region & timing for a dump of poor horder specimens that were saved for parts back in the day. Like Mosins when they were $50 some of us old guys collected Mosins by the year and have rows of them. Heck, I remember when Candyman collected a number of original crates full of hex and round receivers Mosins.
Well back in the 1960-70s some collected Arisakas because they liked them when no one even wanted them. So if a collection comes out of the woodwork in your area, it floods the market with basically parts rifles. That happens now & then. I still see Arasaka parts dogs at our shows, but they have jumped into the $250-325 price range if the stock remains intact. The trick is to find the same maker's stock and then just pull a switch. It may take some time, but a stock should turn up on gun broker or flee bay. The rifles are worth more in parts than complete specimens.

If you just want a part the normal sources like LIBERTYTREECOLLECTORS or Numerich Gunparts are out. Springfield Sporters had just about every part one could want want, but the owner got old & ill and sold off the company. Hence the best source of parts is now gone. Some forum member may actually have some in their part boxes. I never saved any. I'd say get the part so you have a shooter, then over time look for a intact, non refinished stock to restore the rifle. All things come to those that wait & search. Our big gun show is 4 April and I will see if the guy with parts rifles has an intact stock Toyo Kogyo. One never knows, he generally has 30-40 beat parts rifles on his table at the Fond du lac gun show. Last show he had odd ball Mosins rather than Arisakas. I think most of the intact stock rifles have been purchased, leaving the refinished stock rifles that no one wants.

Also out of that part; https://cfnparts.com/index.php?route=pr ... y&path=824

or https://www.japanesemilitaryfirearmspar ... rts_c6.htm

Most of the time that part is left on/in the stock. At gun shows the wood/stock parts guy has chopped shorter stocks, many will have that part and sell for 10-50 bucks for the butchered stock. Few buy chopped stocks, unless they are very well done stocks. Most want the correct wood to use for repairs & spliced in fixes.
Lots of luck- it just takes time.

Sorry S, no luck. I found a circular nut, but it doesn't fit any of the fine threaded screws, and nothing with a 90* shoulder, or flat like a lug would be. PAX
