Here ya go.

I'd just watch out for the shipping, they will sometimes charge you an arm and a leg.

Just sold mine today for $300... I already miss it, but bought a bunch of reloading stuff and some 6.5 Jap ammo to fill the void left in its place...

I have a very nice Type 44 6.5 and a Nambu Type A 90%. These were picked up by a cousin in the South Pacific in 1945. I decided after 70 years it was time to shoot the Type 44. I just ordered a set of Lee Dies and brass for the little rifle. I am going to try some 140 grs. bullets to start with.

How well does that Nambu shoot? Is ammo hard to find?

The Type A and Type B Nambus are among the rare WW II handguns. These are not the later Type 14 Nambu pistols. Yes you can get the ammo and it is pricey. The 8MM Nambu Type A is about like the .380. These can be made from the .223 Rem. Brass. They are valuable and old mine was made in 1918. The risk of damaging them is high. Bill Ruger used the Type B 7MM Nambu to design the Mark 1 Ruger .22 pistol. I will post a Pic of these two arms.

This the Type 44 (1911) 6.5X50 Carrbine. Nambu Pistol Type B (1918). Note the 500 Meter Tangant rear sight on the pistol A 98 gr. slug? Note the Nambu bolt very Ruger.

The pistol on the left is a 1914 DWM 9 MM Luger for comparison.
