Just exactly how many are there? According to Numrich there are three, two short screws, and one long screw which is exactl what I ordered.

However I received my stock and hardware after we ordered the screws, and now it looks like I may need two long ones, and not the short ones at all. Can somone help me out here and tell me which is which? Thanks

You are experiencing the "joys" of trying to bring back the dead and of being uneducated in the ways of Arisakas. Early T-99s have the three screw band, a bit later a two screw band was used. Heck some Izawa rifles even had a one screw band. All depends on what your rifle is supposed to have. Getting Military Rifles of Japan should be the first thing anyone interested in these rifles does.

Early type 99 had front band using three screws one long one up front and 2 short ones in the rear securing the square cleaning rod catch. later on most makers switched to a 2 screw set up one long screw for both front and rear the rear one securing the new round threaded cleaning rod retainer.

Sounds like a pretty cheap learning experience. Add another $34 and you can buy a copy of MROJ or a little less and you can buy another recent T99 book.

What is MROJ? This project burt up a lot of money for a while, but I can afford the extra $3.70 for another long screw, plus numrich has free standard flat rate shipping right now if your order online. Id like to get some ammo for it before I buy a book. With that said I have learned a lot about these rifles, and just how intersting and under appreciated they are by the rest of the milsurplus community.
