Ok, great. I need a parts scematic or blow up. The spring lever on the left of the bolt won't stay in the reciever and the bolt when cycled will come out of the reciever.

My 12 year old thinks it's a type 99 Arisaka. He has a blank firing training Arisaka. What did you shell out for it?

Well after much u tube research I too believe it to be a model 99 made in the middle of ww2. My dad found it and paid 125 for it. The 20+" sticker does not want to come off but I''ll be back to his house tomorrow and take a rubber hammer to it. It is quite disturbing to walk around with indoors as it almost touches the ceiling and the floor at the same time. :roll: I need to figure out what is wrong with the bolt release on the left side as it will no stay pulled into the receiver as it should. If I'm right it should be 7.7mmx58mm. In your opinion would WS be the best oil to protect the remaining finish on such a old gun or should I use something else?

I would think that WS would be fine.... just try to keep it off the stock. I'll take a look see at my boys and let you know what keeps the bolt release in.
Having the bayonet with it is a added bonus...... I bet this rifle sure has a story to tell.

Update: he paid $120 for it. :D I wasn't doing to good last week when I was there at his house as I had some work done on my back. :( I wasn't able to remove the bayonet and it is too long to fit in my car for me to bring it the 3 hours to my house. He doesn't have supplies or tools that I have at my house. Maybe later this summer I can get it to my house to start cleaning it up and try to preserve what is left of the finish. He doesn't have a safe and keeps it in his closet, I wish he would let me keep it in my safe as im sure the finish would do much better in there. It's been fun reading about the history behind the gun and maybe someday we'll get to shoot it. :thumbs up:
