Brief note on using the Baby Nambu
The Nambu Type B pistol, commonly known as the 'Baby Nambu', was a scaled down version of a military pistol designed by Major Kijiro Nambu. It was intended for sale to officers, who could purchase it either through commercial channels or via a co-operative association (the Kaikosha for the Army, Suikosha for the Navy).
The Type B (Baby) Nambu is somewhat of a rare handgun produced from 1907-1929. While it was produced to replace the Type A Nambu, the price per gun was unfortunately too expensive. Although the Type B Nambu wasn’t issued for military purposes, it was available for private purchase by a very limited number of Japanese officers. For many in the military it became a status symbol to own one. Today they are among the rarest and most desirable pistols for the Japanese military collector.
