    Thanks Joe!

    Nope, AA sight wings still intact. I have included pictures of the AA sights and of the rear sling swivel. ALSO, i believe that after the serial number there is an inspection mark. Am i correct in thinking this?

    Hi Doug, you definitely have a no series with cavalry rear sling swivel! A quick disconnect sling would have been attached to it. Cool!!

    I do believe the mark to the right of the Nagoya emblem is a proof/ inspection mark.

    Do you plan to restore this rifle? Fire it?

    There are a few routes you can go... and it'll be pricey...

    What would restoration entail for this piece? I want to, at minimum, get the front sling swivel, but other than that what would I need to do. I would like to fire it, but that I guess would all depend on cost. Im only into the rifle and bayonet for $250 which I thought was a descent deal.

    Hi Doug, you can definitely get a barrel band no problem and then it'll be safe to fire (after a proper cleaning/ lube and inspection by a gunsmith, of course!).

    The only obstacle after that would be all Japanese ammo tends to be hard to find and/or expensive....

    If you want to complete the rifle, you'd need to get a barrel band with fitting for mono pod, the mono pod with spring, cleaning rod and dust cover.

    This feat becomes a lot more difficult/ expensive when you venture out of reproduction parts/ authentic parts with no concern about proper arsenal or series and begin purchasing parts that are specific to what a correct Nagoya no series T99 should have.
