6/25/19 - Made in February of 1943, this is an excellent Nambu Type 14 with 95-97% original blue. There's minor thinning of the straps and a hint of wear on the barrel, but most of the finish loss is on the trigger guard. There are also a few dings in the metal there. It's a large trigger guard variation, which was adapted to fit a gloved hand in cold weather. Excellent grips and period original but mismatched magazine. The grips are not numbered, but the numbers may have been lightly scrubbed. Mint bore.
