Kogyo, Japan

Looking to sell a pre war configuration Japanese Type 14 Nambu. This Nambu was made in November of 1937 by Nagoya/Kokubunji in Kogyo, Japan. This is a part of what is referred to as the original series of Nambus. The pistol, as shown in the pictures, is in the pre-war configuration with the small trigger guard and ribbed cocking knob. At some point, the pistol underwent an arsenal rebuild. The magazine, and barrel/barrel extension were force matched to the serial number. When I purchased the Nambu, it was in a non-firing condition due to having the wrong sized firing pin and firing pin extension. I replaced the firing pin and firing pin extension to the correct and period configuration. The cocking knob that was on the Nambu when I purchaed it, was the late war knurled version that was not forced matched to the gun. So, when I replaced the firing pin and firing pin extension, I replaced the cocking knob to the correct and period configuration, but number still does not match. The pistol functions flawlessly, but I have never personally fired it. The pistol retains much of its original factory bluing, but does have a blemish on the right side of the slide, see pictures. Barrel is in very nice condition with strong rifling. I am not a gunsmith, this is just my observation, so buyer should still have it checked by a gunsmith. Looking to sell for $600 shipped, reasonable offers accepted. Must be shipped to C&R or FFL holder. Please ensure it is legal to own in your area.
