    Has anyone ever heard of this type 99 rifle or have any idea the value of it. from 1939-1945 era

    There is one for sale locally that has matching numbers, still has the mum intact, and is in pretty good shape with the sling.

    Its a 7.7 x 58 caliber

    Offered to me at $350. Im considering it as I collect stuff like this. Just wondered if anyone has seen one.

    Since it still has the mum it means it was a battlefield find. All of the surrendered versions had the mum scratched off upon capture.

    Front side windows tinted 27% to match the others, added Tacomaworld.com sticker, suspension TSB as of 7-21-09, Devil Horns by Andres, BFG's, Alpine with Bluetooth and Ipod contols, Rear view mirror relocation bracket, Ultragauge, Sylvania Silverstar fogs, Sylvania Silverstart Ultra headlights because Lifetime LED's are shit...
    Quickly looking I found them for $200 for ok condition. I also found one for $300 and one in great condition with the bayonet for $599

    Since the mum is still there I would think it would be a great addtition to a personal collection. I guess it depends on if you can get them to move on the price or if it is something that they are firm on. I think it sounds pretty cool though. :thumbsup:

    I cannot vouche for the price, but having the mum intact is a huge plus.

    this is from Wikianswers ( http://wiki.answers.com/Q/Value_of_an_all_original_arisaka_type_99 ) so I don't know the accuracy:

    Yea, i wouldnt even consider it without the mum intact. I have way to many guns already and quite a few from this era. I like the ones that are a piece of history though or has a good story behind it.

    I found a great page to deciphor the markings though

    http://www.radix.net/~bbrown/japanese_markings.html

    thx for the input though. I hoping to get a little better deal on it. I found a matching bayonet for under a $100 already
