The Interesting Japanese Top Break Revolver Model Type 26

Did you know Japan had a military revolver in 1893.

The Japanese Type 26 top break revolver is quite an interesting piece of history.

Sit back and let Ian from Forgotten Weapons teach you all about this revolver.

This Japanese Type 26 top break revolver has some pretty neat features.

The revolver is from 1893 and is chambered for a weak-powered 9x22mm rimmed cartridge. It was close in power to a lightly loaded .38 S&W. Not much stopping power there. The design of the revolver requires a special look for all those interested in how gun mechanics work.

It’s always cool to see a revolver that had a long life even through World War II.
