Japanese Type 99
"Last Ditch" Rifle
See pictures below
This listing is a Japanese Type 99 "Last Ditch" Rifle.
It is a rude and crude manufacture. The screwed
metal butt plate gave way to wood and three nails.
The knurling on the safety knob, aircraft sights, monopod, dust cover and some identifying marks were things of the past.
The Mum, however was still present and nicely done
My friends often asked why I wanted a rifle like this. I tell them that the transition of the Japanese weapons as the war ground to an end fascinates me.
Believe it or not, it was not the rudest, crudest rifle
produced by the Japanese. As materials and time became in shorter supply,
the rifles got rougher yet.

I am not a dealer. I am just a retired fellow whose retirement plan did not meet it's promises, so my collection must go to pay bills.
Stop back from time to time because the list will change as I have time.
OK, here's the fine print...It's
an old gun. I will not warranty that it is safe to shoot. As with any used
weapon, one must have it checked by a gunsmith prior to firing.
