Sorry for the late entry. I have pistol 359114 that came to me in a Japanese holster. No capture papers or dai mark. Would be interested in hearing if this pistol is confirmed as having been used by the Japanese.

Best to all,

Digger Doug

I am happy to report that the research has revealed more new information and that I now have the raw data for the inquiries.
I will be processing this and letters will mail late in October. There were positives and negatives -

Positive: The majority of inquiries were indeed Jap orders, far more than the usual 60% I encounter.
Positive: New information has come to light for the book.

Negative: There will be some disappointed inquirers as some were not Japanese orders, but rather commercial pistols sold in Europe.
Negative: This is just another pile of information that adds to the new 3rd edition and the overwhelming amount of new info keeps adding delays to the production.

More soon...
Anthony

well, I say this now, unless I receive some bad news LOL, that I am looking forward to reading what new information has been revealed! You mentioned about delays for production, just wondering what the new timeline is?

I have not set one up yet and do not know if I will. My year has passed and all I experienced was staring at a computer screen, sometimes more than 14 hours a day. I still need to come to grip that December is no longer a deadline, so no need to kill myself over it.

I am pleased with how the new edition looks, and that is not something I have experienced much in my career, so I know that the delays will be worth it. We have a new puppy and a rescue from Siberia that still needs a good amount of training, so I am going to have some fun with my dogs...
