Should I tie a string to the trigger and stand about 20 feet back before I shoot it

No, the Arisaka is probably one of the strongest actions there is, as long as the head space is good (Shoot it)..............

All I can say is, if it's your grandfather's, then keep it. I would give my left leg to have something like that of my great grandfathers. That's family history you can never, ever replace.

Note the US rechambered and modified many of the Type 99's to .30-06 for South Korean police use. Very doubtful this would have been a "capture" and, if it even came from Korea...

...more likely a trade with some starving soul in Seoul for a can of SPAM. No North-Korean was using a Chinese-supplied Japanese-made Type 38 I'm pretty sure. Most likely 'grandad' didn't bash anything but his wallet out of $8 at a garage sale.

Sorry.

The North Koreans used guns from all over the place. My first tour in Korea was in the early 1960s. My EOD unit provided EOD support to the entire Seoul area and south. Got some neat guns due to my friendship with the Korean NP. Two of those guns are Lugers provided to the North Koreans or Chinese by the Russians. Also got a P38.

The North Koreans and Chinese had Chinese copies of the Mauser 98 rifle as well as German bloc model 98 rifles. The Chinese made 8x57 ammo was loaded with ball powder from a plant Winchester built in China during WWII. We also found 6.5x50 Japanese ammo that was made in China and loaded with ball powder.

We cleaned all the duds, ammo and explosives from the basement of a big police station in Seoul. There were German Panzerfaust anti-tank rounds in that basement.

Most likely reason for the tape was to hold the two piece stock together. They had a habit of separating at the joint.
