Description:

Produced by Kayaba Kogyo for the Japanese Navy up to 1945. Finished in a black lacquer overall, the three barrels are each marked with a rectangular stripe to indicate the type of flare to be loaded; yellow bordered by red on the left, solid white on top and black with green borders on the right. On top of the breech is the Kayaba symbol, inspection proof and a naval anchor. The Kayaba mark is repeated on the rear mounted cocking knob. Standard patent markings, with red and white filled safety markings, checkered grips and a lanyard ring on the butt. A scarce brown leather flap holster is included, with faint ink stamps on the interior and a leather shoulder strap.

Rating Definition:

Excellent, with 97% of the original black finish, showing some mild edge wear and handling marks. 75% of the indicator stripes remain legible, with mild wear. The grips are also excellent, with some scattered light dents. The very fine holster shows cracking on the straps, with mild edge war and handling marks overall. Mechanically excellent.
