"It is a Japanese Type 99, the most common Japanese rifle of WWII..."

Actually, the Type 38 FAR outpaced the 99's use in World War II.

Most arsenals that were intended to manufacture the 99 were never converted, and kept manufacturing the 38 and variants simply because the press of war was too great.
