Hey everybody!!

Alright, so here's what happened... My older brother has had a Nambu Type 14 in his possession for a long time. I believe the man he got it from had it since WWII.

Anyway, my brother doesn't regularly work on guns like I do, so he asked me if I'd be willing to clean it up for him. I said sure, I would! Well, I followed the disassembly instructions on surplusrifle.com, and got it completely apart, no problem. I have her all cleaned up and she is gorgeous! When I took her apart, I found that the tip of the firing pin was broken off. No big deal, as the holster still had the extra firing pin in it.

My problem is: I can get this pistol back together, and everything looks like it should be perfect, like it should work just fine. But it doesn't work just fine!! :) The trigger is stuck, it seems. Even when I disassemble everything all over again and occasionally get things so that the trigger can be pressed and released properly, it seems to have no effect on the function of the gun (it doesn't fire).

Can one of you please help me with assembling this thing to working order? Please let me know. If it would be easier to describe the process over the phone, please PM me with your phone #, and I'll be happy to call you, to go over it.

I really, really appreciate any and all help you can give me. Thank you in advance!!

Luke

Thanks very much! Well, the pistol used to work fine with the old firing pin. That's actually how that firing pin got broken in the first place - too much dry firing. The bodies of both firing pins are exactly the same size. The previous one is, obviously, shorter overall, as the tip is broken off. I never tried dry-firing the pistol before disassembling, as I didn't know whether the firing pin was broken or not. However, I do know that no matter what I try and do now, the pistol will not dry-fire.

I watched the video you linked to, and I really appreciate it. Unfortunately, getting the pistol disassembled is no problem at all. In fact, I think I could probably do it blind-folded by now! :) It's really just the non-functioning of the pistol once I put it all back together, that is causing problems.

Thank you again for your help! If anyone else can suggest tricks to putting this back together to ensure proper function, I would really appreciate it!

Luke

Sorry
See this above, might help assembly shown. Maybe some others may have had the same problem as you have.

This is a little late, and I hope your problem is solved, what was it?

If it is not solved, I have a stupid idea for you to try; remove the trigger assembly, flip the safety from fire to safe to fire and make sure it isn't bound, then making sure it is in the 'fire' position (forward) reassemble the trigger mech.
Second thing to check is the magazine safety may not be engaging, so clean it with a wire brush and try inserting and withdrawing the mag a few times.

You didn't say if you left the magazine in when attempting to fire it...It has a magazine safety...Mag must be in to fire...

...But I'm sure you knew that...just leaving no stone unturned... :mrgreen:
