With some advanced Japanese rifle collectors often posting threads on this Board, we are privileged to view some great images and participate in interesting discussions about Japanese rifles. As a Japanese pistol collector (and "gatherer" of some other Japanese militaria items including a few rifles), I have learned much about Japanese rifles and other items in many outstanding informational posts. Threads about Japanese pistols do not occur very often which is unfortunate, as I would like to see more pistol collector interactions on this Board. So, I thought I would post an image of a couple of Type 14s in early (1926.Nov) and late (1945.Aug) production configurations to spur some interest. These "Taisho" and "Last Ditch" variation pistols are rarely individually encountered and certainly extremely rare when viewed together.
