I have never owned a T-99 with no dust cover grooves and it is big deal for me to finally get one.I have owned 2 Jinsen T-99 with early features and a friend of mine was thinning out his collection and I was able to buy this.It is ground but I don't care. The SN's are very hard to read.Is the circle stamped on the side of the stock by the tang the "Emergency wartime"Proof?

There is also a very small proof on the side of receiver where the dust cover groove may have started if it had them,I could not get a close picture of it and have not seen it before on other T-99 rifles I have had and not on my other Jinsen arsenal produced rifles.Is it just another inspector marking and nothing special?

Inspection looks like that, an inspection mark. Now I'll have to look at others!

60,094 is the earliest serial reported without DC grooves, just FYI.

Is it the one left of the vent hole ? If it is, it's the inspection mark 特 (Toku) and it literally means "special", as in approved under special war-time inspection protocols.
First time I've seen that mark in that location. I've seen it further back near the receiver bridge.

Can we see a picture of the end of the barrel at the muzzle. It looks like more than the normal amount of barrel is exposed in front of the front sight base.
