Where can you get 7.7 Japanese besides from Norma?
A good search tool is ammoseek.com That cartridge is currently offered from PCI, X Caliber, Ventura Munitions, Hornady, Prvi Partizan, and others. You can also try a computer search for 7.7 Arisaka ammo. It is rather pricy at about $1.50 per cartridge and up. If you plan to shoot this a lot, it is worth picking up some reloading equipment and learning to roll your own.

Value would depend on condition and how you know it was a sniper rifle. One thing to check for is to see if there is a cresanthimum stamped on top of the receiver. It wi…ll look like a series of overlapping circles just ahead of where the bolt is located. That was the sign of the emperior and if the gun was captured on the battle field, the design should still be there. If the gun was surrendered at the end of the war, it will have been ground off. The cresanthimum should make it somewhat more valuable for a collector. I have a 7.7mm and a 6.5mm but only one still has the flower. It will also depend on when the gun was made. When things started going bad for the Japanese during WW2, they cut a lot of corners and made cheaper weapons. One way to tell is if the rifle has a metal butt plate or wooden. Also, I think the sights were different towards the end of the war.
The sum of -7.7 and -7.7 is -15.4. That is: -7.7 + (-7.7) = -15.4. This is exactly the same as saying -7.7 - 7.7 = -15.4.
Values for Japanese Rifles vary and unfortunately are not all that high. Due to the mass import of Japanese rifles post WWII into the United States, the value is generally bet…ween $175 and $400. Ammunition is very difficult to find for these rifles and generally has to be custom-made which contributes to their low value.
-7.7 + 7.7 = 0
it is -15.4 they're both negative numbers (-7.7 and -7.7, when you look at them separately) and you just add them up, but keeping the - sign in front of the sum, becau…se: -7.7 - 7.7 = - (+7.7 + 7.7) = - (+15.4) = -15.4 (the minus in front of the parentheses changes all the signs within them, here applied twice)
50-500 USD or so
100-1000 USD or so depending on specifics

A 7.7 Japanese rifle is worth $4,000 or more. If the original scope is still attached, you can basically name your price.
Determining the type of rifle would be the first way. If it's a Type 35, Type 38, or Type 44, it was originally chambered in the 6.5 cartridge. There were also some Chinese Ty…pe 13 Mauser rifles chambered in that cartridge. The Type 99 was the 7.7 rifle, and resembles a Mauser somewhat. However, many of these were rechambered. The Nationalist Chinese rechambered them for the 7.92x57 cartridge during the Chinese Civil War, and the US rechambered many for the 7.62x63/.30-06 cartridge to provide South Korea with rifles during the Korean War. You should take it in to a gunsmith and have them measure out the chamber.

Value of ANY gun is based on exact make, model, and condition. Assuming yours is a military Arisaka, value could be $50 for a common rifle, poor condition, chrysanthemum marks… ground away, converted to a sporter configuration, or $1000 for a scarce model, intact, complete, in Excellent condition. Sorry, simply not enough info to answer.
