I had one some years ago but would not shoot it as the springs seem to be rather weak and soft. I did shoot the Type 94 that I had though but don't remember how it did. The 94's are very weird pistols and can be shot by depressing the sear bar that is exposed on the left side of the pistol, even when the top end is removed from the frame. I have heard stories that clever Japanese soldiers would feign surrender and show the captor the pistol in two pieces and then shoot with the top end. Probably the kind of story that was made up because it could have happened. I still have some ammo (not relic WW2 stuff) which is headstamped 8mm Nambu and not made from 40 S&W which bulges a bit when fired.
