Hi
Picked up a very nice Nambu Type 14 rig yesterday. I will post pics as soon as I figure out the new boards. The gun came with 2 matching magazines, original lanyard, capture tag, and after looking closer I also see that the holster is numbered to the gun along with some Japanese writing. I am going off of memory because I am at work and the pistol is at home but it is dated 17.11 with the large trigger guard. I have several other nambu rigs but nothing as complete as this one. How common are serialed holsters to the pistol?
Thanks
David

Hi
I will try to post some pics tonight. Somthing else I noticed was that the grips are also serialed to the gun. I have several other nambus and have never really noticed this, that may be an oversight on my part though. This pistol just shows that there is alot of stuff out there waiting to be found. It came into a local shop from a young couple along with a beutiful Colt 1911 with a manufacturing date of 1917 with a mint 1916 dated holster.
Thanks
David

A partial translation of the penciled kanji apparently indicates the family name "Kanemori" or "Kanamori." When it comes to personalized identification inside holster flaps, I'm used to seeing pasted paper labels with written (inked) characters and/or numbering. The fact that these markings are penciled in, as opposed to being inked or written on a paper label, gives me a little reason for suspicion, however, the characters appear to be properly written. Takehito - what say you?

I bought it with a nice 1917 dated Colt 1911 that was brought in by the same person. I would say I am into it for about $800.00 maybe a little less as I do not stay current with Colt prices because everytime I look they amaze me even more.
Thanks Again

Beautiful rig. Very nice pistol.

I have collected 1911s for 20 years. I do not buy one often these days due to prices. An original 1917 in 90% condition will go in the $2000-2500 range. 97% gun will near $4000. That is assuming original barrel and mag. That will give you a ballpark value. Nice holsters are over $100, depending.
