Always wanted a arisaka for my "collection" I had a last ditch that was pretty rough I sold and regretted last year. So this other one pops up for 125 bucks a few weeks ago. Someone cut the stock in front of the barrel band and the numbers dont match, But its a arisaka and I planned on keeping it. Well today I go and look at another arisaka. type 99 no mum, all the numbers match, no aa wings or cleaning rod, stocks not sportered or cut down, just a nice clean rifle. So of course it follows me home for the collection.
Now here I have to try to explain to my wife why I drive 45 minutes across town at 730 on a sunday morning to meet up to get this thing. Sometimes they just dont understand that 70 year old rifles arent being stocked on the walmart shelves, so when something like this pops up for sale, you sort of have to go to it because it doesnt come to you. jim
