Type 99 Last Ditch Question

Hi Guy's
Today I put a Toyo Kogyo series 35 rifle on layup. This rifle has a full untouched Mum. However, the bolt is an earlier type
. The bore is great and the stock is very nice. My question is what type of bolt would be correct for this series of rifle? BTW, I paid 200.00 for this. I guess I had to have the Mum. TIA.

One with the rough welded safety, though occasionally the smooth turned safety is seen.
Serial number would be helpful.

Price is about the norm for mismatched, maybe a bit high.

Forgot to mention ser.# is 34169. There is also a small o on the bottom of buttstock. I did not see any other inspection marks.

Don't assume the bolt is incorrect. Toyo Kogyo rifles had a plumb bolt through the end of production. Even if mismatched, the bolt may be the correct type. TK kept a higher standard of manufacture than Nagoya.

thats true on the bolt. the series is a nice series as it was made right before the end of the war. its an uncommon rifle and i think the price is fair. these are more of a historic rifle than a shooter and almost every 35th i have seen has a mum on it. i own one myself and cannot bring myself to sell it even though i need the room for incoming rifles. my only advic eis dont fall into the "must have a mum or i dont want it" opinion. that will only lead to you spending way too much cash on common guns and perhaps even bypassing a great deal on a rare rifle.

I really like the TK 35th series! I only have one that is mummed, the others appear to have the mum gouged or grinded out. I have one from Rcb (I think) that has a crudely finished plum bolt. I'll drag it out later and take a pic.

Rifle 34013 had the rough welded safety, 36460 had the smooth turned safety; so it looks like either would be ok for your rifle.
