Nate,

I concur with the previous comments about your 2,9 Chigusa and holster. From our conversation and the images you provided to me, all its features/markings, save one, are normal for its period of production (A=MON over TA; 26 groove grips; 2.5mm arsenal mark). The anomaly is that this gun has arrows on the left side. Chigusa added arrows between the fire and safe marks to standard production in 3,2. I only have report of a very small number of earlier Chigusa guns with arrows (three 2,2 and one other 2,9). There are no reports of missing arrows after 3,2.

Any truth to the theory that these arrows were sometimes added to the pistol during the recall when the pin/safety mods were done?
Russ (please see my email a few minutes ago),

I don't think know for sure. Certainly, it is possible and, maybe, even probable. However, with only five reports of arrows present in pre-3,2 guns out of 67 reports, it obviously didn't happen very often, as very few of those guns didn't go through the recall.
