The 6th edition of the Standard Catalog of Military Firearms gives a value for a Arisaka type 99 short rifle as: Exc. $500, V.G. $375, Good $300, Fair $125, Poor $75. That assumes matching matching numbers and an intact mum. For whatever thats worth.

Gun confiscation will not happen in my lifetime.
"Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience." C.S. Lewis
