WCChapin | Arisaka Update – Post Independence… | Bottom Metal, Front Sight, and Stock Clean Up
The day after Independence Day, 2021 – and a day off work – spending a warm, pleasant day cleaning up Type 99 Arisaka parts.
All of the replacement parts have arrived, and my Dad was able to weld up the extra hole in the tang of the bottom metal. I’m working on touching up the bluing where the repair was made.
This morning, I boiled all of the metal parts to clean them and to convert any surface rust – the next step is to card them with a soft wire wheel or steel wool.
Take a look at my other videos of this rifle to see more details, and how the work has progressed.
