I also have a type 99 Arisaka and while at a gun show recently I found out that Norma is once again making ammo for the 7.7 Jap so I picked up a few boxes of it.

Yep- the Arisaka was a very accurate rifle- and one of the strongest actions made. Many of the complaints about "late war" rifles was based on a small number of military cadet drill rifles that were captured. Meant only to fire blanks, a few were loaded with ball ammo by GIs, and fired with predictable results.

I can tell the one I have was used and refurbished. The serial number is from 1940, it has scratches from a bayonet, it doesn't have a monopod, dust cover, or AA sights, and the bolt has been replaced (prolly toward the end of the war, cause its a lot lower quality than the rest of the rifle)

the bolt handles before i converted em to bent bolt,s and polished em up, and how i filed and prepped receiver and other metal for hot blueing. you can see it was pretty ugly when i started im pretty sure it is an early model nokura type 99 7.7,it is deadly accurate ,accumounts make the scout mounts with an additional rail to use normal eye relief scope im going to scout mount this one so it looks more like a military rifle ,It is an attention grabber at range sitting besides it,s sportered brother,all have to come look at em .now ill show the sporter if you have not seen it on other thread .my uncle was stationed in japan during & after the surrender as a marine and said there were piles of them he picked two best from top and brought em home.All had mum,s removed all i know if the mums had been intact i woulda left em alone.but i have two very fine rifle,s now that shoot very very straight.

And here is the long range hunter i built from the other, i use it on coyote,s here in Ohio,and deer in ky and tenn.Stock is from boyd,s needed work for final fit and bedded and recoil lug installed, used a modified m44 comp to reduce muzzle blast and recoil i use heavy 180gr sierra btsp .311 bullets and load em to about 2600 fps.Also an early model nokura im sure.She will reach out there with whispering death from afar.

Thats kinda like the russians re-arsenaling the k98's by "peening" out the swastikas. Thankgod the lot I have doesn't have but ONE peened spot on one rifle. I've always wanted an arisaka. I'm considering applying for the C&R license so I can just get them shipped to the house.

That is prolly the first sporterized arisaka I have seen, that actually look beautiful. All the others I've seen are either "tacticool" or just look like crap.

A year ago I was bidding on sporterized Arisakas on Gunbroker at around $120. I always lost out at the last second by someone who would run it up just a hair more, but I was hunting for a bargain. I would only pay $200 today if it was a gun I saw first hand and was really in love with it.
