In excellent condition, and totally matching,  we have an Early 1942 production Nagoya Arsenal made 1st Series Japanese Type 99  Service Rifle.  This was the standard 7.7 m/m Japanese rifle of the Pacific War and although it never fully replaced the 6.5 m/m Type 38 rifle In the Japanese Army,  it was by 1943 the most commonly encountered Japanese infantry rifle outside of the the China/Burma Theater.  This is a very early production rifle and has all of the desirable early features such as the monopod and the antiaircraft craft sights.  This is exactly what you are looking for if you want a main line Japanese Army battle rifle.  Of course you never have to worry about a bad bore on one of these rifles as the bore was chrome lined.  The Type 99 rifle was a very innovative design for a bolt action rifle, and while it may have been a dated and obsolete by the standard of the semi auto rifles such as the Garand, it was very well suited for tropical service in harsh jungle conditions and it was a prized war trophy among Allied Servicemen.
