My one example of a Japnese pistol.
i don't mean to hi-jack your thread but i thought this might be best asked to someone who actually owns a nambu. i heard that these are for the most part very unsafe to shoot, is this true?
the person/place (i cannot remember where or who) that told me this mentioned that the Japanese were so rushed to make these that the quality took a serious turn for the worst and that they were basically trigger operated grenades. is any of this true? thanks for educating the ignorant/poorly informed.
BTW that is the nicest looking one i have seen in a while, good find!
Hi, I have a Papa, Baby, one small guard T14, one large, a 94 and the revolver. You could say many things about the different ways countries came up with weapon design and some I'd agree aren't the best choices, but I sure wouldn't call any of these pieces of junk. You can bet I wouldn't carry the 94 loaded but it is still fun to shoot and no worse on accruacy than most other military pistols.
The Baby Nambu pistol was really a work of art, pretty damned complicated for such a small caliber round, basically a Papa just scaled down. Anyone out there loaded for the Baby? I haven't had time to come up with a decent load yet, it sure doesn't take alot of powder.. Regards, Guns[I collect, therefore, I am]
