Below is a link to an excellent writeup on the Type 99 blowup test conducted at the 2005 Blevins/Banzai Shootout by Mr. Boone. Good pictures and interesting information. Those old Arisakas are pretty tough!
Blowup Test updated link. Thanks Smokey!

I didn't pay to much for that old Arisaka, I just bought it a little bit too soon!

Here's a link to an article in the 5/1/04 issue of Guns Magazine, it touches lightly on P.O. Ackley's blow up tests in the 50s.

Japan's intriguing Arisakas

That was a fun round of testing,and one of the only scientific experiments we've conducted that anyone rememebered to keep the data for..to think of all the mystery's of the japanese empire we've solved in those late night block house 'brainstormings' and indepth research,all lost to time except this one little piece,that thankfully you guys managed to save....now if someone had just kept the "research" results on : CC rifles, unserialised guns,pre and post production items,education rifles..guess we will have to start all over again in May 2009.
