WWII Japanese Type 94 Pistol with Slab Side Wood Grips
WWII Japanese Type 94 Pistol with Slab Side Wood Grips…Typical late war crude finish Type 94 with the flat wood grips that distinguish this pistol from the earlier versions…The pistol is matching with the exception of the magazine.
The poor design of the breech allowed the Type 94 Nambu to be fired unintentionally. The sear bar on the Type 94 Nambu converts the forward pull of the trigger into a lateral movement that frees the hammer. Because the sear bar is on the outside of the pistol, it could be jarred loose during engagement if the pistol was cocked and handled carelessly. The forward end of the sear bar would need to be depressed approximately 2mm to cause the weapon to fire. The ability to fire the Type 94 without pulling the trigger gave rise to war stories of Japanese soldiers surrendering, only to fire the pistol, earning the pistol monikers such as the “suicide special” and the “surrender pistol”. These stories are widely discredited because of the difficulty to fire the weapon by squeezing the sear bar. If the safety is engaged on the Type 94 it is impossible for the weapon to discharge unintentionally.
