    Default Very early 8th series Type 99

    Here's another pretty nice, near unissued early 8th series Type 99 by Nagoya. The early 8th series was pretty much a continuation of the late 7th series. It features the different style fixed rear sight found on 7th, 8th, and 40th series rifles. The stock also uses a 2 screw rear band. Also a bit uncommon for a Nagoya Last Ditch rifle, the bayonet lug is numbered.

    A very ground mum, but the rifle is matching.

    Overall a nice example.

    Purists of the world, unite!

    “If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.”
    Samuel Adams

    Conrad,
    That's the earliest 8th I've seen. The numbering of the bayonet lug was eliminated around the 14,000 serial number range. I guess they finally realized it was a waste of time to do that on a non-removable part. There are about 5 distinct variations in series 8. At this time I have one of each.
    Preserving history. One rifle at a time.

    Just a solid example right there! Thanks for sharing.
