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.

Unissued, matching late 7th series Type 99 in last ditch configuration

#1 Post by lthilsdorf » Wed Aug 22, 2018 6:43 pm

I picked this rifle up last week off Gunbroker and am very happy with what I received. It was a risk, with pretty iffy photos, but it was a penny start auction and only went for about $160.

It's a matching, late 7th series Nagoya Type 99 in basically unissued condition, looking like it just came out of the closet with only minor surface rust. It's all matching and the screws are still staked. This series is when Nagoya standardized the last ditch pattern, with the last 5,000 or so having the fixed peep sight. The rifle also features the short length extractor.

The following parts match:

-Bolt body
-Extractor
-Firing Pin
-Safety
-Bayonet lug

Only way this rifle could be improved is with an intact mum. Overall I'm very pleased, and it goes to show there are still deals on really nice rifles.
