Just in case anyone might be interested, here's a few views of the
Nambu that I added to my collection yesterday. Pretty much
a standard late war 'slab grips' version, as far as I can tell.

The only thing a bit unusual, is that the first character in line
on the left side seems to have been overstamped another.

The magazine is original and numbered to the gun. And like
others of its kind, the firing pin will indeed trip when
firm pressure is applied to the external sear bar...

Not the best example of gun engineering to be sure, but an
interesting little piece of martial history in any case.

I concur with Ed...A nice example of a late war T-94. I feel that is one of the only guns that you have to have three hands to take apart. Your mag appears to be pretty nice (smooth). Mine came with a nickel matching mag and a non-matching blue mag that although it is 99% blue, looks like it was made out of tree bark!! (very rough!).

Yes, I have to agree that the metal is unusually smooth.
I once owned another from the same month (October 1944)
which was even more finely finished. Meanwhile some of
those made six months earlier under less stressful war-
time constraints were completely covered in toolmarks.

Delightfully crude !
no Japanese collection is complete without a slabside T94.....or so I told myself when I finally popped for mine.
Unfortunately, my magazine is the right one for the date and serial number, but not matched.
