Type 99 Arisaka
Just a few pictures of a Type 99 Arisaka that my late father brought back from Japan following WWII. He was occupation forces immediately following the surrender and was posted to Tokyo.
Prior to returning to the states he was part of a detail that was sent to pick-up "souvenirs" for their unit. He said that when they arrived at the site that the military had "piles" of
rifles, pistols, bayonets, machine guns, flags, etc. They loaded the truck and this is the one he brought back along with a bayonet and several other items.
Shot this rifle when I was in my late teens and early twenties. It has been in a single gun carry case for the last 40 years (at least). Chrysanthemum has been ground off.
No cleaning rod or sling. Manuf. by Toyo Kogyo, Series 30, SN# 41194. He also picked up a bayonet and the symbol indicates that it was Unknown Company under
Got it out, cleaned it and figured I would post a few pics. Now I need to take some time and go to the range and see how it shoots after 40+ years. Enjoy. Pardon the date on the pics.
