Overall VG, mum intact

The Type 97 Sniper Rifle (九七式狙撃銃, Kyuunana-shiki sogekijuu?) is a Japanese bolt-action rifle, based on the Type 38 Rifle. Following the standard practice of the time, it was adapted from an existing infantry rifle. The only difference between this rifle and the original Type 38 is that it had a lightened stock, a longer, bent bolt, a 2.5 power telescopic sight and a mid-band setup for a monopod, although later models has this deleted. The rifle entered service in 1937, or on the Imperial Japanese calendar, year 97 of the current Imperial era. When fired, the mild 6.5x50mm Arisaka cartridge gave off little flash or smoke and made counter-sniper activity difficult. The lack of flash and smoke comes from the length of the barrel; a 600 mm (23.5 inch) long barrel may allow cartridge propellant to fully burn and attain the optimum combination of accuracy and bullet velocity. The barrel of Type 97 Sniper Rifle was manufactured up to 797 mm (31.4 in) long, and is long enough to hide almost all the flash flames because the propellant is completely burned up before the bullet has left the muzzle.
