WWII Japanese Type 14 Nambu

Published on Aug 8, 2016
I bring the Japanese Type 14 Nambu out of the gun room and hit the range. The 8mm Nambu is a bit of an oddity but served the Japanese military through much of the early quarter of the 20th century in one form or another. The Type 14 Nambu is pistol that took the Imperial Army through the Second World War.

I had one of those POS. A bringum-home.

I din' watch the video. Don't need to. But I do wonder how many Japs caught a round in the leg from their own gun. You can fire the fargin thing by tapping the left side.

TINS.

The "safety" isn't.

This is the model that Ruger based his Mark series 22lr pistols off of, which is arguably one of the best if not the best 22lr pistol made IMO.
