Пистолет Nambu 1902 Type A и Type A Modified

Legacy

Sometime after WWII, firearms manufacturer and entrepreneur Bill Ruger acquire two Nambu pistols from a US Marine & used the Nambu’s silhouette and bolt system to successfully duplicated a prototype in his garage. In 1949, he introduced the first prototype of what would become the Ruger Standard (MK I) pistol to his affluent friend and potential financial backer Alex Sturm. When first shown the pistol, he was impressed by its sleek traditional aesthetic and its slight resemblance to the classic nostalgia-evoking German Luger P08 pistol.

Realizing that prospective buyers would share his sentiment, Sturm quickly signed on board with an initial investment of $50,000 and the two teamed up to create what was to become an iconic American firearms manufacturing company, Sturm, Ruger & Co..

The Standard (MK I) model (produced from 1949-1982) and its counterparts: the MK II (1982-2005), MK III (2005-2016) & MK IV (2016-present) went on to become the most accepted and successful .22-caliber semi-automatic pistols ever produced.

History

The origin of the Nambu pistol series goes back to a design by Lieutenant General Kijiro Nambu. General Nambu claimed the design originated with experimentation during the “30 year Automatic Pistol Plan” of 1897 in Japan. It is probable that the pistol series was influenced by the Mauser C96, after a Japanese commission toured Europe and reported recent developments. The first Nambu type known as the Type A was completed in 1902. The Type A underwent trials with the Imperial Japanese Army but was never formally adopted. Many Original Type As were sold commercially to China and Siam. Coinciding with British customs, Japanese army officers were expected to purchase their own side arms. The Nambu Type A Modified pistol was adopted by the Imperial Japanese Navy in 1909 and the Thai Army in the 1920s.

Most of the Type A Modified and Type B Nambu pistols were produced by the Tokyo Arsenal with a few pistols being produced by the Tokyo Gas and Electric Company. The Type 14 Nambu was produced by the Nagoya Arsenal in either Nagoya’s Atsuta or Toriimatsu factories.
