This Type 14 Nambu pistol from the Nagoya Arsenal is a semi-automatic pistol chambered in 8mm. A 4.75 barrel is adorned with a notch rear sight and a blade front sight. The rear cocking device of the Type 14 Nambu inspired the Ruger Standards own design as William Ruger acquired a Nambu from a returning Marine. The smooth wood grips stand out nicely from the blued steel of the rest of the pistol. This package also included a World War II-era holster.
This Nambu Type 14 pistol was produced in Nagoya and has the large trigger guard typical of later generation handguns. This type of semi-auto pistol, chambered in 8x22mm Nambu, was a standard sidearm of the Japanese Imperial Army from about 1925 through World War II. The 20.2 date mark on the frame is for the 2nd month of the 20th year of the reign of Emperor Showa (Hirohito) which ran from 1926 until 1989. This translates to February 1945 on a Western calendar. To put that into historical perspective, this is the same month that the Japanese began their month-long fight to hold Manila in the Philippines.
A very late war production Nambu, this gun comes from the Toriimatsu factory who switched to ungrooved wooden grips in November 1944 to help speed up production as the Allies closed in on the Japanese Home Islands. These grips are referred to as "slab" grips by collectors.

Shopping at Guns.com gives you the backing of a company that is committed to your satisfaction. And unlike our competitors, it extends beyond the buying process. We get the FFL from your store – others make you find it, copy it, and fax it. We have a generous return policy, and handle everything – you don’t have to go back to the store. And our Rangemasters are here to answer all your questions about our products or process. We're bringing a level of service to the online gun buying experience that is unheard of.
Many online gun sales actually take away from your local community. Instead of buying a gun that’s on your local store’s shelf, most retailers drop ship it from a warehouse in another state. At Guns.com, if an FFL is part of our network, we sell THEIR guns first whenever possible. That way, we’re helping small businesses in your community AND if they have it in stock, you can pick your gun up IMMEDIATELY – it’s how business should be done.
Most everything can be easily bought online these days. But for some reason, buying a gun online can be complicated. Most websites are poorly organized, don’t tell you a lot about what you’re buying, and leave you on your own to figure out what you want. Guns.com is built to be simple – easily organized products, useful descriptions from experts, and support to guide you to the right choice. Spend your time enjoying the gun you want, not getting frustrated with a complex website that makes gun buying hard.
