5/29/20 - This is a WW2 Japanese Type 99 Arisaka rifle. It has an early serial number. All numbered parts are matching including the bolt and small parts inside the bolt. The original cleaning rod is in tact. The metal parts are blued and have retained most of their original finish. There are a few small spots of discoloration. The mum has been ground off. The stock appears to be original and is in good condition - just a few handling marks here and there and a few spots of discoloration. The bore is minty - shiny with strong rifling. The rifle functions properly.
