Type 99 Help

1016 Views 6 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  WillRuss
Received a Type 99 from a veteran who was part of the occupation force. He told me when he brought it home the action worked but currently the bolt or safety do not operate. There is some movement in both but they do not function beyond that, The safety will push in but not rotate.
looking for some advice on what to look for or someone in the Chattanooga area that would know what to do.
Any help would be appreciated.

If there is no rust or corrosion. Use anything that would clean a modern rifle. If you have issues post picture of those areas for further assitance. If it is an early rifle with a chrome bore. Stay away from bore cleaners with a high ammonia content the chrome bore doesn't handle it well so I'm told.
