    WWII 10th Series Nagoya T99 Last Ditch Arisaka

    Just popped into my local gun supplier's place after physical therapy today. Amazing stuff that walks through the door; I thought I would do the economy a favor and help the retiree who walked in the shop with this Nagoya Series 10 Last Ditch T-99 Arisaka. Other then someone "un-staking" the screws and the mum being defaced, this gun looks like it left the factory last year instead of 65+ years ago. I'll post a few teaser photos; and then a link to the rest of them. I broke down the bolt; the frame, extractor, firing pin, and bolt all match...not a bad deal for a "C" Note...

    See all the nice photos here: Nagoya Series 10 last ditch T99

    Nice catch! DO we have some Japanese rifle experts? If so, and I hope I didn't ask this before, did they make a rifle with no rifling? Reason I ask is the dad of a high school girl friend had an old WW2 Japanese rifle that was slick in the barrel. NO, not shot out, you could tell it was a smooth bore. He fired the 7.7(?) ammo out of it. I can't recall the markinngs, that was many moons ago.
    It always looks darkest.....just before it goes totally black.

    Wow, that is in super-good shape! You couuld prolly sell it for twice what you paid for it, but it's way too cool for that. Love the rear sight on that...not kidding about the 'last ditch' part.

    A good article on last ditch arisakas:

    http://fingolfen.blogspot.com/2009/0...h-arisaka.html

    DRINE: Also look up smooth bore arisakas and trainer arisakas. Much information on smmothbore arisakas sounds like they were made only for firing blanks, and are not actual rifles, and thus dangeorus to shoot with real 7.7 ammo.

    Yes they did, they were smooth bore school trainers, do a search for that and you will find them. I have one at home, the dealer thought it was a 7.7 with a broken case or such, they have useally soft receivers, and were not set for shooting high pressure ammo. They shot a underpowered ball shot, for use in confined school yards.

    My dealer didnt know what he had, I always love telling him about the weird military stuff he gets his hands on.
