The Series 6 Type 99s were also manufactured at Nagoya with the antiaircraft ears.

That rifle in your link has NO AA sights . I have one of the largest T-99 collections in the country , every series and every 10,000 serial number block minimum . On all of my Nag 5 rifles the AA arms start to disappear about 90,000 with some rifles made a little after still having them and some not . None of my very early nag 6 rifles ever had them .

Whoops, you're right, it doesn't. I looked at it really quickly and thought I saw the wings.

I'm certain I've seen Series 6 Type 99s with the AA sights, but I can't find anything to back that up right now.

If you find one tell me as I will buy it since I have never seen one in 30 years of collecting Type 99 rifles .
