gun show arisaka type 99 find
Found an all matching, full mum, type 99 short rifle. The guy had it priced at $425, but got it for $300 because it had no monopod,dustcover, or cleaning rod. Blue is very nice, wood is decent, and bore is exc. Early rifle also. Can anyone tell me if this was a good price considering 7.7 ammo almost extinct, thanks.

Good luck finding any 7.7 Jap.......................But you can find Brass, Bullets & Powder just about every where, so I would suggest reloading.
