    I always thought it was an 03-A3, but it might not be. I know photos would help, but not till tomorrow; not at home. prior to having it "sport-r-ized by a pro gunsmith in 1971, it looked like your typical 03-A3, however it doesn't have the markings above the serial# and it only has a 4 digit serial #. any clues?? I will try to answer all questions you have.

    You have to be kidding. What are we guessing about? You need to show clear well lit closeup photos of any Identifying marks on the gun. Or all you are going to get is smartalic remarks like mine.

    What you have is a Japanese type 99 Arisaka, no question about it. Obvious from your description.
