Somebody offered to trade me one for my Win '95... It sounds like a awesome rifle! I couldnt find one on the online auction sites, so I have no clue what ones worth... I read that theyre chambered in 9x23 Largo (Thinking it would make a neat pistol/rifle set for my Medusa!)

What can you guys tell me about them?

The Destroyer is a nifty carbine. I can get you one for cheap $$. Your '95 is worth way more.

Yeah... Keep the '95. The Destroyers go for around $250 to $280 range when they're cleaned up. Like JP said, your 95 is worth far more.

I would not consider such a trade unles there was a bunch of $ coming your way with it. 9 X 23 Largo is available, but not really plentiful.

The one I own is chambered in 9MM Parabellum. These are not expensive firearms. They were used by the Police in Spain during the 1920s. The value on one as posted is under $300 dollars. :)

I got one!! It is one of the neatest rifles ever! :D
It may not have the range, but its every bit as accurate as my '03... Mines in 9mm Largo. The other day the first time I took it out I was popping bottles like nothing! I was shooting from 20 - 100 yds and didnt have to flip up the ladder sight. I guess the Spanish dont mess around with prisoners!:eek:

If anybody comes across one, get it!! I definitely recommend one for any collection!

What would be the "correct" pistol to go with this? Do the pistol and rifle share the same magazines?
Mine came with a nylon sling, what does the correct sling for this rifle look like?

Some pics:

Nice! How many mags did it come with? If you need anymore, I saw a few on gunbroker for about $15. They looked a little rough, but they may work.

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.:)
