I love Japanese ammo. My favorite is by fare the Japanese Torpedo Gyroscopes and thier bomb fuzes. Thier craftmanship and engineering go past function and into the realm of art in many cases.

CSAEOD you listed above “7.62 Nagant”, could you tell a bit more about it?


#5

I bought these shells from a fellow which a Japanese military display at the Tulsa OK. show ( 5000+ tables) He claimed that he brought it back from Japan. He sold me all but one of the shells but would not part with the last shell and box. He lent me the box to photocopy. He said that these were for the Soviet Nagant pistols which the Japanese had in some amount due to their various tiffs with Soviet and/or Russian troops over the years. He also said that they were “reloadable” The box contained additional large copper primers and and brass anvils as you see. The bullet is lead-deep set and concave. There were a couple in the box and this is the lst one which I have. I have never seen any others. Note the ptimer on the loaded round is partially crushed on one side which could imply hand loading. Brass case,copper primer. He said the N on the label meant NIPPON- don’t remember the rest and didn’t write it down.

The information and picture of the NPK box is very important information. N.P.K. is the mark of Nippo-Kogyo Company. Why they abbreviate it N.P.K. on the box, with periods after each letter is a mystery to me, as that would indicate that a word is missing between “Nippon” and “Kogyo.” Up until now, from information from the Japanese National Crime Lab, I was only aware of them making Shotgun Ammunition. Some years ago I wrote an article on post-war Japanese ammunition. At the time, Nippo-Kogyo was producing shotgun ammunition under license from Remington, of the United States, and used typically-Remington green-colored cases, and the Remington RXP trademark. They procured their powder and primers from Nihon-Yushi, an oil and chemical company. Their ammunition was marketed by Nissan-Miroku Company. They also produced sky-blue colored shotshells under the trade name “Mighty.” As of 1988, the only date I have in my files, Nippo Kogyo held 30% of Japan’s market share for production of shotgun ammunition. This is the first I have heard of them producing any metallic cartridge, much less 7.62 Nagant Revolver! Very exciting information!

You are looking at the last one I have. It looks like this box had 10 to start but was only a partial when I saw it. I sold my couple of extras @ $100 each with this guarantee: " if you find another one for sale at any price over the course of the next year I will return your money and you keep the cartridge". It never happened.

Here are 2 of my Japanese WW2 Fuzes made out of brass. I was told that they both belonged to the same Navy, air dropped bomb. The one with the wings was the bombs tail fuze and the other its nose fuze. Like their torpedo gyros, the Japanese made some extraordinary bomb fuzes. Their craftsmanship and designs are spectacular.

Hope this is not too off topic, just thought this fuzes were a cool part of Japanese ammunition.

VERY MUCH ON TARGET . THANKS.


#10

The left one is a base fuze and is missing the thread cover cap.

Cool! I am happy they are relevant. The link to the photos is great! Thanks EOD. So it looks like they are both tail fuzes. If you look at the other photos, you can clearly see the engineering beauty of their designs.

Ok, I saw this item recently and was intriged, especially by the case. I know nothing about it other then the seller is calling it a Japanese Type 92. The really intriging part to me is the design of the casing. It actually unscrews in the middle. I thought this was pretty cool as I have never seen this concept befor and thought some of the “Forum People” may find it interesting as well.

This case was designed so that the propelling charge could be varied to suit the range. Uncommon version of the case.


#15
