Nambu World: Dan Larkinís Production Research Database (2)
††††††††††† Continuing work begun by his father, Mr. Mike Larkin, Mr. Dan Larkin maintains and continually updates the worldís most extensive database on known surviving specimens of the Type 14 and Type 94 pistols. This has enabled collectors and researchers to determine the relative rarity of the various months of production, the serial range within which various production variations were introduced, etc. By special arrangement with Mr. Larkin, Nambu World is pleased to make these data available to the public. All data are courtesy of Mr. Dan Larkin. Enquiries and reports of additional specimens can be sent to Mr. Larkin directly at: Contact Mr. Dan Larkin
††††††††††† This part of the database shows production by year.
††††† The dates are shown as stamped on the pistols, i.e. using the year and month of the reign of the Showa Emperor (Hirohito). For example, 10 means the tenth year of Emperor Hirohitoís reign, June, 1935. To convert the year to the Western style date, add 1925 (1925+10=1935).
††††††††††† In the next two bar charts, the number at the base of each bar is the year in the Japanese system based on the Emperorís reign, as explained above.
