The series had four variants, the Type A (also called the Type 4), the Type B (also known as the Baby Nambu), the Type 14 and theType 94. The pistols were designed by Kijiro Nambu and saw extensive service during the Russo-Japanese War, Second Sino-Japanese War and World War II. The Type A and B Nambus were never formally adopted by any branch of the armed forces of Imperial Japan but were sold to officers through officer stores. The Nambus began to suffer in quality as World War II progressed against Japan.
This gun has been found to be a Type 14 and was made early on in their history. It is a fine collectors piece for any WWII buff.
