    Two of the three rarest Japanese pistols. The Baby is in 7mm Nambu while the Papa is in 8mm Nambu. The 8mm is the same round as used in the more commonly encountered Type 14 pistol. I handload both rounds and shoot both pistols. Scan 528.jpeg

    Really cool, thanks for sharing. I have only seen a few of these in person. Always great to see them! There are not many people that shoot them. Awesome!

    How did they get to the US?

    It would be neat to hear about where they battlefield recoverys or whatever.
