The Japanese Nambu Model 1925

1945-4-OutdoorsOutdoors, 1945. Charles Haven reviews the Japanese counterpart to the Colt .45 Model 1911. The Nambu ’25 looks like the Luger but the operation is more similar to a Mauser. Charles points out that the pistol also has some serious design flaws. The awkward safety was positioned above and ahead of the trigger guard so that it could not be released with the shooting hand. The shooter had to use the free hand to release the safety. The writer points out that the safety issue combined with a light trigger pull means that these pistols may have been hazardous for soldiers out in front of the other troops.
