2/25/21 - This is a gorgeous Baby Nambu pistol that was manufactured at the Tokyo Arsenal in the 1910s, and still has the original, matching grips. The pistol has about 97% of the original blue, with minor muzzle and high edge wear, and a little bit of bluing loss on the grip safety. Minty bore and grips. 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.
