10/21/20 - This is a nice example of a Baby Nambu rig that was likely part of a private purchase for a Japanese officer of either the Army or Navy. The marking on the top of the chamber indicates it was manufactured in the Tokyo Arsenal. The gun is all matching and comes with one original matching magazine. The gun has retained roughly 80% of its original bluing. The most obvious sign of wear is pin-pricking and spotty oxidation in the metal throughout. This is typical for these guns since they were used mostly around salt water. There is also minor wear on the high edges of the slide. Excellent grips. The bore has relatively weak rifling, and there is minor pitting throughout. It comes with a rare soft shell holster. There is light cracking throughout, and it looks like a few of the stitches may have been replaced. The shoulder strap is a post-war reproduction.
