NAMBU MACHINE PISTOLS
TYPE II, MODEL A

THE TYPE II, Model A, Machine Pistol patented by Kijiro Nambu in 1935. Rejected by the Army but used by the Imperial Naval Marines in the Sino-Japanese War and Shanghai invasion. A 50 round cartridge magazine extended from the pistol grip. The projection at the bottom of the magazine was a latch used to lock the weapon in a vehicle mount.

 fter World War I, new submachine gun [machine pistol] designs were appearing in the world markets. The importance of this new infantry weapon was being created by inventors and industrial promoters to the ruling military establishments in many countries. Its significance in a post world war era was being underestimated and lacking in priorities. Although Japan was plagued with wars, the Military High Command was not aggressive in their strategy for a rapid fire pistol even though they had been experiencing positive results with their machine gun activities.

In the late 1920’s, both the Japanese Army and Navy increased their attention for use of such ordnance. Through the early 1930’s there was a limited amount of importations of foreign machine pistols for research and testing by the services. One model, which showed favoritism, was the Schweizerischi Industrie Gesellschaft [SIG] MODEL 1920 in 7.63mm caliber. Some were purchased for the Army and equipped with a barrel shroud attachment for bayonets. They were eventually used on the eastern fronts. The Navy issued some to their Marine units.
