Format: Hardcover
This work is the definitive work on Japanese Handguns. It details information that the collector and student of Japanese handguns can find in no other place. I would highly recommend reading this material to anyone wishing to advance their knowledge in this field of firearms collection.

Of all the books on Japanese hand held firearms, I feel this one is the best. Honeycutt's Military Pistols of Japan is a close second, but can't match the quality of this book. It has all the technical thoroughness one would need without being too dry and boring. The quality of the printing and paper is top notch. The photographs are beautiful! Many are full page color photos worthy of an art book. All in all, the book isn't cheap, but considering you will never need to buy another book on the subject, it's well worth it!

An excellent followup reference book on Japanese handguns used from 1893 through 1945. Excellent photography as well as understandable text make this book an important addition to anyone collecting Japanese handguns.

Really a great book/study, well researched. Packed with useful information, photos, charts, lists etc. The proof mark and serial number research is by far the most informative that I have ever seen. You don't have to use the internet to search for information when you have this book at hand.
