Type 94 Manual
I have acquired a reproduction Type 94 instruction manual. Here is the cover. The column in large type in the middle says: gInstruction Manual for the Care and Handling of the Type 94 Handgunh. The column in the far right says: gPublished in April, Showa 15h, which means April, 1940. The column in small type just to the left of that says: gPublished by the Nagoya Army Arsenalh. The circular mark in the lower left is a name stamp with the name gYamazakih in it. The name Yamazaki also appears in handwriting on the back cover, which is otherwise blank.
I will be adding a translation of this manual as soon as I can get it done. It will take a while as the copy quality is very poor, so the characters are hard to read (some are completely illegible). It also uses a ton of technical terms and is written in pre-war Japanese, which uses many characters that were dropped or simplified after the war.
