12/9/20 - This is a rare Modified 1902 Type Papa Nambu, produced by TGE (Tokyo Gas & Electric) for the Imperial Japanese Navy. Naval production was only about 3,600 pistols, which were reportedly issued to the Special Naval Landing Forces and saw action in both WWI & WWII. From the serial on this one, we believe it was made in the 1910's. This one has retained around 97% of its bluing. While there isn't much actual finish loss, there is pitting on both straps and spotty oxidation throughout. The bore is worn with pitting throughout. Excellent correct grips. This one also comes with the rare original lanyard. Comes with a mismatched magazine.
