Japanese Handgun Production Figures
††††††††††† The following are approximate summary data:
††††††††††† Type 26: †††††††† ††59,200
††††††††††† Grandpa: ††††††† ††††2,400
††††††††††† Papa: ††††††††††††† ††10,300
††††††††††† Baby: †††††††††††† ††††6,500
††††††††††† Type 14: †††††††† 279,000 (102,200 with the small trigger guard and 176,800 with the large trigger guard); this number could be as high as 282,000
††††††††††† Type 94: †††††††† ††71,100
††††††††††† Totaling these numbers means Japan produced less than half a million handguns of all varieties combined from the first Type 26 in the 1890s to 1945!
††††††††††† With the kind permission of Mr. Dan Larkin, Nambu World is now able to provide detailed data on monthly and yearly production of the Type 14 and Type 94 pistols. Now you can see how many guns were made in the same month and year as yours!
