Japanese Model 99 Rifle

I have a Japanese Model 99 rifle with split stock, flip-up anti aircraft sight, attached monopod, and original sling. It also still has the Emperer's mark as it was a "dead soldier" gun.
I received it from my Dad before he passed away. He got it from his father, and was assured it is the genuine article. Anyone know of a place I can get an accurate appraisal ?

Re: Japanese Model 99 Rifle

don't have a clue........but since it bears the emperorer's flower mark....(can't spell it), that ought to be a real treat and much more valuable as far as an insurance estimate.

from the history and from dad......i would say it is priceless.......

Re: Japanese Model 99 Rifle

....yup-we can help you out there-I'm an Admin... ....but firstly,we need PICTURES...!!!....it it a T99 cabine-or long rifle???....photos of the whole rifle,and closeups of the receiver top and side rail markings very helpful in ID which help determine value...it it all matching???...etc...all these things will help determine its worth...you can post them here too and I can do my best to give my .02 and get you in the ballpark with info...but we have some experts over there who can do MUCH better
.....the top rifle in this pic is a Vet bringback with all papers...a T99 Toyo Kogyo Series 35 Arisaka made in Hiroshima...its a long rifle and a scarser model to boot so with the documentation probably near the $500 range to a collector

Re: Japanese Model 99 Rifle

...looks to be a Nagoya 4th series short rifle....cant quite tell from the series mark to the left of the serial # 'cause I cant see it close enough...can you get closer clearer pic of that area on the side rail??...will give more of what i can tell so far later,but its late and Im feelin fried....looks to be a nice original sling too!!!....be careful with it and take gentle care...the one that was on mine was so delicate and rotted it fell apart ....you have a beauty worth some $$$ from what I see so far...

Re: Japanese Model 99 Rifle

that "mono-pod"......wonder how good it was in practice?

and i've seen on the history channel about those anti-aircraft sights for leading planes.........i think they were a tad optomistic as well........

is Norma still the main source of ammo for the japs? that stuff can get high dollar.
