    Naval "Special Type 99" rifle

    Thanks for your replies.

    I finally got my Navy type 99. I did some trading for it. It's an early model with a solid wood stock and long handguard. It also has a matching bolt and a clean bore.
    With your advice I won't be shooting it. It will be a nice add on in my collection.

    Thanks from NorthWales Fred

Covering the SMLE from 1903 to the end of production in India in 1989 it looks at how each model differs and manufacturer differences from a collecting point of view along with the major accessories that could be attached to the rifle.

    With a steel bolt locking into the barrel extension, and the chromed bore, these were obviously meant to be fired. I know that I have no intention of shooting mine, though.

    I have one and have not fired it either. Not because I'm afraid too, I just don't have a desire to fire any of my collection. The screws on mine look hand made and might shake out if fired. Mine has a long handguard also. I beleive the one I have is the only one I have ever seen.

    Mine has a short handguard, middle band to receiver ring. The screws look as if they were slotted with a hacksaw. In the barrel channel are characters in pencil for "Nakamura". I assume this was the assembler.
