    Default Arisaka 99 mum matching

    Bought this 99 Nagoya 6th series yesterday at a local gunshop.Was sitting in a rack next to a sporterized 99,selling for$199.The tag on this one was $249,and after drawing the dealers attention to the charred wood,was able to take it home for $225. Had a layer of dust nearly as thick as fur on it,appears to have stood behind a door for the last fifty years or so.Swabbed out the barrel,pushing out a couple of long dead spiders,to reveal a near perfect bore.All numbers match.The charred wood just gives it a bit of island battle charecter to me.Some photos for your viewing.

    Yes they are Anti aircraft sights were used to properly lead an airplane.They are marked 1- 2 -3 .For the speed in kilometers the plane was traveling.Believe the officer was to give this range and speed to his troops. Ground fire could be a hazard to aircraft,but just how well these did is unkown.But no other nation used them on their service rifles. The tanto is pre 1920
