Another "sporterized" battle rifle. In this case, a ground-mum Type 99 Arisaka that went through the hands of a novice (I hope) gunsmith in the past.
This unfortunate rifle underwent a less than optimal bolt-bending procedure, leaving the bolt straight and directed sharply back, rather than having a graceful curve down the side of the stock:
The handguard was thrown away; the stock roughly bobbed; and what appears suspiciously similar to an aftermarket metal hose strap serving as a barrel band.
All of which was most likely wasted effort, as the original military sights were left as issued. Not a big deal when used as intended, aiming at center mass of a soldier's torso, where an impact six inches or more above the line of sight was still counted as a good hit. Not so much with the horizontal of a whitetail deer or feral hog.
Hopefully this old rifle will find a home with someone who enjoy shooting the 7.7 cartridge, but doesn't want to put wear on their excellent condition C&Rs.
