Arisaka Type 99 Rifle...
My father recently gave me his prized Japanese Arisaka Rifle that my Grandfather had given to him when he was my age. I've noticed that these rifles don't really fetch much in the $ department and I have no plans on ever getting rid of it so I want to restore the rifle and fire it from time to time.
It's actually pretty neat looking, its bare metal and not blued...I can't tell if its stainless or not (but I've never seen a stainless Arisaka) It does not have the Chrysanthemum stamp.
Does anyone have any tips on how to clean up the stock ? Where can I get ammunition for it ? Would it be better if I load my own ammunition ? It has some slight rust from sitting in my dad's gun safe for so many years...what's the best way to clean that up ?
Well, these are enough questions for starters, I guess. I look forward to your replies !
