12/2/20 - This is a very nice Baby Nambu pistol that was manufactured at the Tokyo Arsenal in the 1910s, and still has the original, matching grips. The pistol has about 95% of the original blue, as there isn't much actual finish loss. Just minor wear on the frame safety, high edges and trigger guard. There is oxidation on much of the pistol, though. Excellent grips. Bore is shiny but does have some frost and freckling, more towards the muzzle end. Original but mismatched magazine. The Baby Nambu was developed as a personal weapon for high ranking Japanese officers and only about 6,500 were made in total. Considered by collectors to be one of the most beautiful handguns made in pre-war Japan, it featured ornamental knurling on the cocking knob and high quality “rust” blue, that rivaled European handguns of the era.
