    The Japanese characters are very clear, have you had them translated?

    Nice find on the originals. Occasionally reproduction boxes of the 8mm ammo can be found at the gun shows, but don't recall seeing the repro 7mm Baby Nambu ammo.

    Fascinating! Thanks for the link. Only 340 numbers away in a shipment of 5000...I'd say the odds are good. One can only dream at this point.....

    I do wish for a satisfactory connection, but based on Colt serial number shipments they may not be that close or good odds.

    Those clamshell holsters are based on French model for the 1873 and 1892 service revolvers. Great protection if a bit bulky. Japan also borrowed tank designs from the French.
