Re: Arisaka Type 99 with intact mum
After seeing the last few pics, I can tell you without any doubt, do not sell for less than 900; in this condition, you have a very stout well built rifle that is cream of the crop. There are a few variants that are more rare and worth more, but for a standard 99, this one is fine. If you have the dust cover, that would be a bonus, but doesn't devalue it tooo much. The sling appears to be in excellent condition, the original sling definetly adds to the value. I would think that $900-1100 range is where this gun would go for at auction without the dust cover. with original dust cover, add +50.
What time frame are you looking at for moving? I lived up in Wa for years and have family all over. I'll be back up that way in Puyallup and W.Seattle this coming Jan. If you still have it then, I would love to look at it closer and if all goes well, I may be able to make you a fair offer on it.
