I recently obtained an "attic find" Type 99, and am in the process of replacing some of the missing parts. I am somewhat stumped over the cleaning rod. I have several early war Type 99's, and each of those have a somewhat lengthly cleaning rod. However, this stock channel for the cleaning rod on the this rifle is only a couple of inches in length. The channel ends at a metal piece in the stock that passes completely through the stock from top to bottom. On ebay, I have noticed very short cleaning rods being auctioned that appear to be under five inches. I am no expert on Type 99's but I am sure that that there is someone out there that can inform me about cleaning rod lengths on Type 99's.
