5/28/20 - This is a very nice example of a Nambu Type 26 revolver with an original holster in excellent condition. The Type 26 or Model 26 "hammerless" revolver was the first modern revolver adopted by the Imperial Japanese Army. It was developed at the Koishikawa Arsenal and is named for its year of adoption in the Japanese dating system (the 26th year of the reign of the Meiji emperor, i.e., 1893). The revolver saw action in conflicts including the Russo-Japanese War, World War I and World War II. This particular revolver has about 95% bluing with all the wear on either side of the barrel. The bore is mint, and grips are excellent. Holster leather is in fantastic shape with just a few scuffs here or there. Some Kanji proofs are inside the top flap.
