Shooting a Type 99 Nambu in 7.62mm NATO

Cool Forgotten Weapons merch!

Some older footage from the vault – this was a gun I bid on, but did not win. Didn’t want to have the whole audience thinking about bidding against me…but now that it’s been sold there’s no reason not to post the video.

The conversion of the Type 99 Nambu form 7.7x58mm Japanese to 7.62mm NATO requires only a new barrel, and no permanent modification to the gun. Some people have converted M14 magazines for them because original 7.7mm magazines are very rare and expensive. The same conversion has also been made to the Type 96 Nambu, but the 99 is a larger and more robust gun better suited to it.
