Re: Arisaka Type 99 with intact mum
This is one I would love to have in my hands and get an up close look. From the pics, I'd say you have a very fine 99. The vast majority do not come close to the appearance that is shown by the pics. Just based from what I'm seeing and your descripition; I'd say $700 is the bare minimum I would let this one go for. Upon closer inspection, this is one that may fetch $1000 or a little more with the two bayonets and documentation. I would like to see a closer and clearer pic of the series marking and photos of the crown, bolt, chamber and sights please.
The bayonet in the 3rd pic is 99% certain from the Kokura Arsenal.
