description

As the replacement for the Imperial Japanese Army’s (IJA) Arisaka Type 38, which had a cartridge deemed insufficient in lethality, the Type 99 was introduced in 1939 and was chambered to accommodate the 7.7x58mm Arisaka ammunition. The IJA produced the Type 99 in four versions; the standard Type 99 Short Rifle, the less common Type 99 Long Rifle, the Type 2 Paratroop Rifle (a takedown model) and the Sniper Rifle Type 99. With the outbreak of the Pacific War, the Type 99 never fully replaced the Type 38, rather supplemented it. During the later stages of the war, the Type 99, like many IJA weapons, suffered in quality due to cost saving measures taken to produce a greater number of weapons.
