Original WWII Japanese Type 99 Light Machine Gun Partial Parts Set
Original Item: Japanese machine guns very rarely show up for sale, so we are happy to offer a partial parts set which includes some of the parts that collectors most need to complete their guns. Included in this set are the following pieces:
- Type 99 wood butt stock with securing screws and sling swivel (no butt plate).
- Type 99 trigger grip housing assembly (no trigger).
- Type 99 Bipod (Very desirable!)
- Type 99 Op Rod
- Type 99 Carry Handle with wood grip
There are all offered in very good condition and a hard to find replacement part for the desirable WWII Japanese Type 99 LMG.
This model was developed in 1939 as a replacement for the Type 96 LMG and fired the new, heavier 7.7mm Japanese cartridge. These weapons proved to be very successful throughout the war by all the Japanese forces and were used on all the Japanese held islands and mainland China. They are very similar in appearance to the British Bren gun in that they have a top mounted curved box magazine, a forward mounted folding bipod, and a new quick change, finned barrel that featured a top mounted carrying handle. These were a well made machine gun that featured all machined parts with a hard wood buttstock and pistol grip
The Type 99 was probably the most successful Japanese Army machine gun of the Second World War. It looks like and was used like the famous British Bren gun, including the top-mounted magazine, a folding bipod, and a quick-change barrel. Unlike the Bren gun, however, the Type 99 was equipped with a mount for the standard Japanese rifle bayonet.
This is a very rare and desirable machine gun as not many were brought back by returning GIs as it is a heavy bulky weapon. A very nice example of one the primary WWII Japanese light machine guns.
