Default Type 99 arisaka for $200. Good deal?

Local guy is selling a type 99 arisaka for $200.
From what I have seen with these rifles, this is a deal. I have been textin back and forth, and it seems that it fires fine. Presumably, he still has some ammo that comes with it. Is this a good deal I should get?

Why not?

Has it been sporterized? Does it still have the "Mum"? What kind of ammo is it?

Ive spent between $200-$300 on the Type 99's I bought. They were non-sporters with mums.

No mum? I thought all Arisaka's were supposed to be stamped with the mum.

As a symbol of the emperor, soldiers would do their damndest to remove the mum, iirc.

The mums were ground off of the rifles surrendered after the war. In Japanese culture the mums symbolized the Emperor and surrendering your leader to the enemy was frowned upon.

I was sent pics, and it looks to be in good condition. It comes with 20 rounds of ammo. The only special part about it, is it has the flip up "aircraft" sights. No dust cover, bayonet, mono/bipod, shortened hand guard, scope, or cleaning rod. Just a simple arisaka

I'd say go for it. The only hassle I could see is findint ammo for it. There are enough people on here that have one, so they can probably help in that department. I almost never see it around here, but I know that it's still available somewhere. My uncle and I Keep our brass and reload it, but one of our LGS get it in from time to time.

I attend a military collectors show twice a year, and I know some of those locals have some. I also know a couple guys that reload a lot, so I suppose if I could get the dies and the bullets (I read that .303 British bullets are actually better than factory loads), then no problem.
