I have been hearing that for years. What type of steel was being used opposed to what they went to later? Sounds like a rumor to me. Nobody ever knows what kind of steel is actually used. I have worked on quite a few 99's and the later models actually have more steel milled out of them. Facts if you have them. I am interested. I have a piece of a receiver some one was kind enough to donate to me, and I will eventually do some testing on it when I get time. I would not be afraid to barrel a 99 to .308 that was made in the early 40's.
