Some type of Japanese Nambu is my best guess.

Looks like a Japanese weapon....sort of?

Actually looks like a copy of a Nambu, but the wheat markings sound authentic.

It looks like a viet cong home made from jap nambu parts and part home made.:rolleyes:
That from what we know is a fair assumption, what about calibre? I would venture if that was the case the calibre might well be 7.62 mm (Type P).

The North Vietnamese rebarrelled French 9mm Mat 49's for this round being Soviet so I guess they had a lot of it. Plenty of Vet's here with a lot more insight than I...:)
