New T99 sniper, with PICs

I just bought this T99 sniper and a nice T38 rifle this afternoon.
Both are matched and 'Mummed. These quite literally just came out of a closet.

Enclosed are some pics of the T99. The metal has some sort of splashed varnish streaked on it, but the wood is untouched.

The rifle is missing:
-The guard screw from right behind the trigger guard,
-Both of the front band screws,
-The rear band screw,
-The front stock tip metal plate that has the hole for the clearing rod.
-The short rod.
Anyone have these parts for sale?

Sorry about the quality of some of the pics, they were rushed, as I could my wife coming home.....I'm sure you understand.

Regards, Ned

Sorry for the bad photos....it's number 8153.


Is this close to the end of Nagoya T99 Sniper production?
According to my copy of Honeycutt, the end number is in the 8000 range.

Vic, by any weird chance, is scope number 8153 out there sitting solo?

Regards, Ned

Afternoon Ned :
We lost the modem Monday, finally am back on line. Good find on that Nagoya 99 # 8153, mum, matching bolt. Looks like the rifle was taken appart by bubba and promptly loss the screws. I also have the parts you need in case Big Ed doesn't have them.
Stand corrected !!!, the highest Nagoya 99 sniper reported is # 9984, estimate rifle production at 9999. As far as the known scopes. no the matching scope for your rifle has not surfaced yet, nearest known issue scopes are two for rifles 8089 and 8278. The matching scope to your rifle maybe a 4X or a 4X adjustable, I won't be able to tell which until the matching scope surfaces, but since we estimate that adjustables have been seen in the 8000 to 8200 range there is a 50 / 50 chance that the matching scope might be an adjustable.

Ned,
Nice rifle.Just a note Vic should have told you a 4 power adjustable is a mighty pricey item.I hope your search yields some positive results. Any history on your aquisition? Thats the part that interests me the most on these rare birds.

Ed,


The gentleman I purchased these from was in the army, but from 1946 through 1949, and served in Panama and British Giana (spelling ?)
Where he got them from is a mystery to me.

I figure the scope, if one can be located, will the the real expense
in completing my sniper rig.

He also gave me a Mills 1919 dated US web pouched cartridge belt, what appears to be a WWI multi-row chest grenade carrying rig, US Krag 1897 dated bayonet, some sort of US weapon tool roll-pouch, and a very cool leather-on-canvas flapped pouches over-the-shoulder cartridge bandoleer. I haven't looked really hard to see what country. (Haven't had the time as I just bought this stuff yesterday, and my wife keeps cruising around, making it difficult to assess my finds !!!). I'll post some pics on the appropriate forum when I can.
His wife was thrilled to see this stuff leave the house, and I think he was happy it was going to a collector.

Hello Big Ed & Ned :
Any chance you two are cousins ?. all kidding aside I did not talk about prices not wanting to scare off a new collector / correspondent. Yes by the time a scope trades a couple of hands and winds up on the internet prices go astronomic. Regardless of which scope you locate it will be a major expense. 4Xs are running in the 1500 on up range, wjhile the adjustables are upwards of 3 grand.
Ned if you can locate a 4X scope then you will have a good representative sniper rig, same can be said if you can locate an adjustable. But either way you will have to have a comparable scope to trade for the matching one, or be in a finacial solvency to offer to buy it outright or bid on it on auction
