I once read an article in "Guns and Ammo" magazine where the Nambu came out tops for accuaracy in all WW2 sidearms they tested. They put it down the small cartridge.

This is very interesting Guys.The first time I saw a Nambu I thought it was a kids toy.The best way I can describe it was that it was so crap I absolutely loved it.As has been mentioned You dont see many of them unlike Lugers.As for buying both? It will work out pretty expensive.Even the holsters for these pistols are cool again in their own different way.
Well, it depends, do you collect mostly german or jap items?
I would have gone for the Luger, though I love the Luger =)
(But in the end, it's up to you!)
If it were me I would go for the Luger, because I like it the most and by a long way. The value to me is how much I like it. The Luger is iconic, the other is not. But as already stated if you get both you can't go wrong! Jonathan.
I would get which ever one I had a preference for. Luger's are fine weapons but if I had an open spot in my collection and the type 14 Nambu filled it that is what I would get.
No question...Luger. At least, if you felt like it, you can easily buy ammunition for a Luger. Not so with a Nambu. I had one for years and never Did shoot the thing-couldn't find shells for it to save my head....
