The Type 97 Sniper Rifle was imagined as a suitable sniper rifle to be employed by sharpshooters of the Imperial Japanese Army in WWII. It adopted a characteristic monopod with 2.5x scope. the long barrel of Type 97 produced minimal flash and smoke, making counter-sniping activities rather difficult when Type 97 was employed by a good sniper.
We have faithfully recreated one of the “big 3” battle rifles from WWII. Built from aluminium alloy and real wood. S&T Type 97 features the Imperial Chrysanthemum marking on the receiver as an added touch of authenticity and the appropriate offset scope and monopod. Powered by spring, Type 97 requires no batteries or gas and is a reliable partner in any field of Milsim.
Although the original real steel 2.5x scope has no zero-return, S&T made a simple axis adjustment function and fine-tuned with a hexagon key.
