FWIW that appears to be a 99 parts kit.

Wedge style barrel lock was only on the 99’s and a few transitional 96’s. If it a transitional 96 then they don’t have the same parts as a conventional 96

 Thanks for your interest in my parts kit. As you can see in the linked photos this is a February 1941 Kokura gun and bears markings indicating its status as a Type 96. Kokura production of the Type 99 did not begin until 1942 which would rule that out by date range alone. Additionally this style of barrel locking pin with shim configuration is a well documented variant of the 96 as cited by William Easterly in a number of his publications. Feel free to shoot me a message if you have any additional questions.
