I picked up this Type 14 two weeks ago. Mag and firing pin are not matching. No numbers that I can find on the firing pin. The bore is real nice with no pitting. I see that Nagoya made around 12,000 in 17th series. Does that make worth more than a more common Nagoya or Kokura? When I bought it I knew that the mag was a mismatch but not the firing pin. Well live an learn I paid 450.00. I think to much.

I don't think you overpaid. I would have paid 450 for that pistol. Hell I see guys asking that much or more for a T-14 that has no bluing left and has pitting on it.


Your gun looks like its in nice shape for 1942 production!!

Don't sweat the firing pin for the price you paid as long as the tip is not broken. There are a lot of un-numbered field replacements out there. It would be a bigger deal if the mag matched and condition were 98-99%. You got a good gun at a wholesale price.

I agree with the others, you got a very decent deal. Even if the firing pin has no numbers does it have inspection marks? That will tell if it is an nu-numbered field replacement. It's a nice clean 17 date.

Just FYI, it is not a 17th series, but a 17 date; it is a Nagoya First series T 14, which are the markings before the serial number.

After looking at high magifcation it looks like a W mark and part of my serial #.[/QUOTE said:
Firing pin looks like it might have been repaired at one time. Are you referring to an possible inspection mark on the firing pin?
