    ARISAKA TYPE 99 WRIST REPAIR?

    A friend has asked me for advice on repairing the wrist on his type 99. I believe the conventional method of opening the crack and cleaning/ gluing the crack and clamping will
    work. I cannot find any info on original Japaneseicon armorer repairs. Was threaded rod used as with the SMLE? He wants a strong repair but the Kanji on the stock makes it to interesting to foul up with a non original appearing repair method. Any and all input appreciated.

    I don't know what the Jap's did but I know what I'd do.
    somebody's already been at that stock, correct? If it wasn't glued would come apart in two pieces?

    I hope to put eyes on soon and I will answer. I suppose that answer would have some bearing on the method of repair.
    Was assuming it was the open crack insert glue type but you may be right.

    The Japaneseicon did not repair T-99 stocks , none ever went back to be repaired . The Kanji is not original to the rifle , it was added later . The stock has already been sanded and refinished . If you want to fire that rifle you are going to have to pin or bolt the crack .

    I was beginning to think that was the case.

    How can you tell? I know it was not issued as such but thought it might be period applied.
    Again ,have seen it in person yet.



    Thanks
