    Default Latest Acquisition. 1943 Type-14 Nambu

    Gents,

    Had an old friend call me the other day to let me know that she was ready to sell a few of her late father's possessions. I ended up purchasing this Nambu with holster. I used to own a Chigusa and missed not having a Nambu in the case. So, decided upon this one.
    All matching serial numbers with the exception being the magazine. Not uncommon at all to have these mismatched.
    Your comments are always appreciated.

    Very nice the Japanese Nambu is such an iconic firearm.
    If you don't mind answering a question for me ? as I have yet to handle one in person and from looking at the Nambu the balance seems very heavy to the back does it have a tendency to pull up when firing.

    I have a similar example, previously shown-it's a large and heavy pistol for the low powered 8mm round and is well balanced but does need 3 hands to operate it...

    Thank you all for your posts. I'm afraid to report that I have never fired the previous Nambu I owned as well as this one. I believe that ammo might be in the realm of 50.00 for 20 rounds...
