    Those are beauties! Do you shoot them much? Ammo is pretty spendy, as I recall.

    Unfortunately no... I have a grand total of about 10 rounds of 8mm Nambu (for the Type 14 and the Type 94), but none of the 9mm Japanese for the Type 26.

    One of these years I may get dies for them...

    I've put a few rounds through my Type 26, loading .357" bullets in .38 Super cases trimmed to 22mm length and inside-reamed. I think I used .38 Special dies; I'll have to check my notes. It was sort of a hassle, but I didn't feel like paying $1 per round for factory ammo.

    The type 14 is how Bill Ruger came up with the Mark I design.
