The Early Model 99 Short Rifle
The long rifle version was very quickly abandoned, leaving the so-called short rifle, as the only form of the Model 99 rifle.
Picture number 301 (picture courtesy of Shannon Zeigler) shows a typical early Model 99. Note the monopod.
Picture number 302 (picture courtesy of Shannon Zeigler) shows the monopod detached from the rifle with its attaching nut and bolt and spring.
