7/24/20 - This is an original xample 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 little of the original blue remaining, but the wear is even throughout. The bore is mint though, and grips are excellent. Holster leather is in great shape with just a few scuffs here or there. Some Kanji proofs are inside the top flap, as well as another Tokyo arsenal marking. The original shoulder strap is included but is torn in two.
