EDIT: i have been informed this may be a 39 not a 42. the date marking is for the "14th year of the Sho Wa" Thanks Anubis:D

hey guys ill have pics up when i get home.

i have a 39 japanese large guard nambu, numbers are almost matching but the rear toggle and lack are different. overall condistion is about 85% or slightly better. still has the spring on the front strap.

comes with original holster, cleaning rod, a weird striker(w/no firing pin, never had on on it... dryfire or for parade detail?) and bringback paperwork. also comes with about half a box of ammo from OWS.

SOLD.

Is the Imperial Seal still intact?

If you mean the chrysanthemum or "mum", nambu pistols were never marked in that way. If you see a japanese pistol with a mum, it's a fake marking.

Thanks for the heads up. I just assumed they would be marked like the Arisaka.

No problem. There are more than a few nambus around with fake mums. They pop up on gunbroker now and then. :shifty:

The markings are quite funny on these pistols. The safety literally says "fire" as in burning and "safe" as in home and comfy. lol

Bump for a cool and interesting looking pistol. What caliber?

The date should be on the other side. Looks like a mid-war pistol due to the style of trigger guard. Any chance of another photo? Does the serial match the capture papers info? One magazine or two? Are they matched?

RiverJack, it is chambered in 8mm Nambu. Similar in style to .30 Luger.

1939 is correct for a Showa date of 14.XX.

I have an app for my phone which converts the dates :D

Yes, you are partially correct, however, what is shown in the picture is the nomenclature for the pistol itself, i.e. "14 Year Type" or Type 14 as we know it. The date and month of manufacture is on the other side. Forgive me for the quality of the picture, but my camera's battery is charging, so I used my scanner. Please note the location of the date.

I would be interested if the seller would get back to me with an image of this area.

I believe this is the correct answer... The first 2 characters is the year (14). The third character mean "year". The last character mean "type". I always wanted to pick one up. This should be the similar pistol my grandpa was issued when he was an officer in the Japanese Imperial Army (he was drafted) dring WWII. This would make an awesome gift for his 100th birthday in 2 years! I just have to some how sneak it back home... :eek:
