    Default Toyo Kogyo 32nd Series

    Here is my Toyo Kogyo 32nd Series Type 99 Arisaka Rifle. From what I can tell, the gun seems correct based off of Doss White and Don Voigt's Type 99 book, 2008 edition. It has an intact Mum. It is a transition rifle from when they were removing some features such as the monopod in mid to late 1943. It was made at the Toyo Kogyo plant in Hiroshima which later became Mazda. The bore is nice. Most of the screws seem un-turned. There are a few with minor evidence of being turned. The metal on the Type 99 screws are so soft that the screws become ugly once a collector puts a screwdriver to them. The Japanese also staked the screws which is probably why we see so many deformed screws. If anyone has any thoughts regarding the correctness of the rifle, please chime in. Here are the pictures.
