Description

Seller's Description:
This one is in Vg shape with perhaps 60% of the japanned finish. The mechanics are VG and everything works. The grips are in fine shape, and as you can see it is marked in many places. Sorry I don't know what all this means. It appears that it may be missing one grip screw , yet the grips are on very tight. The reserve will be met as all these guns I have up are estate guns that must be sold. I have placed the reserve far lower than any I have seen sold elswhere. Please look over the next 2 weeks as I will be listing almost daily until they are all gone. Here is some info I found on the web. Buyer pays $15 shipping. See my other auctions. Japanese flare guns (shingo-ju) are quite scarce. Shown above are a an Army Type 10 single-barrel (right), Navy Type 90 double-barrel model (centre) and a Navy Type 90 triple barrel (right). Total production of all Army and Navy models combined was less than 30,000 units . Of this low number, even fewer survived because most were used on board ships and planes and most of Japan's ships and planes were sunk or shot down during the war, resulting in the loss of all equipment on board. They were also not as popular as souvenirs with US GIs as regular pistols, so few were brought back. Fortunately for collectors their prices do not fully reflect their scarcity since collecting flare pistols is not as popular as collecting regular pistols. I think they are really cool, though, and was pleased as punch to be able to obtain two of those shown above in December, 2007 when a US collection was liquidated. In April and July 2008 I was able to add two more. I also have holsters for the single and double barrel models, but am still looking for one for the triple barrel. The Imperial Japanese Army used almost exclusively the Type 10 shown above, which fired 35mm flares. The Imperial Japanese Navy used several models that had one, two or three barrels and discharged a 28mm flare. Of these Naval models, the double-barreled version of the Type 90 was by far the most common (there were actually more double-barrel Navy flare guns made than the single-barrel Army Type 10). The flares themselves are very scarce. I don't have any yet, not even a spent shell. Near the end of the war a tiny number of single- and double-barrel pistols were made for the Navy in 20mm (12 gauge), but the latest book on Japanese handguns, Collector's Guide to Imperial Japanese Handguns 1893-1945 by James D. Brown, now considers these as "Special Naval Pistols" intended primarily for guard use with 12 gauge shotgun shells, whereas in previous works they were lumped in with flare guns.
