12/8/20 - This is a rare Modified 1902 Nambu or "Papa" Nambu. There were only about 9,000 Papa's ever produced. The pistol has all matching numbers, including the left grip panel. The right grip panel also appears numbered and matching, but it's faint and a couple of the numbers aren't clearly visible. The bluing on the pistol rates at 95% or so as there isn't much finish loss, most notably a spot of wear on the trigger guard. There is some pitting in a few areas though (grip safety, front of frame, left side rail, frame under grips). There's also some oxidation on the back strap. Terrific bore and the grips are in excellent condition. NOTE: This listing includes only ONE magazine, not two as in the photos.
