A scarce example of the very desirable "Baby Nambu" pistol with matching magazine manufactured by the Tokyo Artillery Arsenal in Koishikawa, Tokyo. These rare pistols have a high quality rust blue finish with a bright polished "in the white" bolt with the straw colored trigger, magazine release, sear pivot pin and bolt lock. The matching magazine has a nickel-plated tube and aluminum base. The grips are finely checkered hardwood. The chamber bears the four intertwined cannon balls symbol for the Tokyo Artillery Arsenal with the three Japanese Kanji markings and the left side of the receiver that identify the model above the serial number "5773". It has matching serial numbers on both grip panels, the underside of the bolt, the cocking knob, striker guide and the back of the magazine with an unnumbered firing pin. Approximately 6,500 examples of the finely finished compact "Baby" Nambu pistol were manufactured before production ceased in 1927. The "Baby" Nambu is the most scarce and desirable Japanese semi-automatic pistol.
