I had that exact same model. Played many a Marshal Dillon episodes with that thing.
I was started off young down the path.

It's a very cool little pistol. I bet there's not too many of them around!
There were Three hundred thousand or more made. Pretty popular pistol back in the production days.
I've looked in the Blue Book of arms 10 or so years ago. They were valued at around $375 or so then. Have no clue now.
Only seen one for sale though and that was at a wannamaker show in a German collectors display. His prices were way above BB prices.

I know it's a POS. I know the Japanese made better models before and during the beginning of the war. This Nambu Type 14 was thrown together toward the end of the war in 44 but still has all matching serial numbers. The 8mm bottleneck cartridge is difficult to acquire and a disappointment to shoot especially when it jams every round.

I also know my father fought in Okinawa in WWII and was in the 96th Infantry Division which was one of the 8 infantry divisions to be sacrificed in the invasion of Japan.

To that effect, I treated this gun as would any European Theater GI would treat any German Luger brought home from war. It is now in the possession of my son. Serial #32268
