Designed in 1925, the Type 14 was built with the goal of simplifying the Japanese Nambu pistol design. The Type 14 is a recoil-operated, locked-breech pistol that was originally conceived by a Japanese general. This pistol was adopted by the Imperial Japanese Army and widely used during all South East Asian campaigns and through World War 2 as a standard Army sidearm. The pistol is striker-fired, with single-action trigger and a manual safety on the left side of the frame, above the trigger. The trigger guard can be removed to make cleaning easier. This single-action pistol has matching numbers. The handgun features a blade front sight with a rear notch, a 2-position safety, and an 8-round magazine and comes with the original holster and lanyard. Its grips, metal, and bore are all in very good condition.
