I bought this type 99 series three Arisaka for $60:



Then I got a stock that was already sanded with the hardware I needed for $120:



Now with it all stained and shellaced and put together:







Alls I need are the front hardware screw, which are cheap. Total with the screws the cost was around $195, these are really neat rifles. Thank you all for your help!

Nice job.

I'll bet this will not be your only restoration or aquisition!

I wont believe that it was sanded, there is too much detail. Very nice, you turned a goofy looking gun into a beautiful one.

Good job. There are several people who post on the board that make replacement screws that will complet your work.

You did a good job getting that rifle back together.The stock looks good, they didn't get carried away sanding the finger grooves, as the other guy's have said there are members here that can help you with getting the screws.

Thank you guys. Im very proud of it. I think I may have a screw lined up, but I havent heard from the guy in 4 days now, so I think he doesnt have one or he hasnt been able to get on. There is actualy very little to show that the stock was sanded. Some sandpaper marks near the bottom of the wrist area show it, but not bad at all, and not very noticable.

You are lucky then. These were usually so shallow that any kind of sanding would take them off completely. Yours may have just been washed with scrubbing bubbles.
