This is a Japanese T-26 revolver. They were manufactured from 1893 till about 1925. They continued to be issued to rear echelon troops through WWII. This particular example was manufactured at the Tokyo Arsenal has its original pre-war blued finish. Unfortunately it’s not possible to pinpoint the date of manufacture of this revolver by serial number because records were destroyed by allied bombing in WWII. A very loose estimate based on the limited data available puts it in the 1910s. The holster is correct for the revolver and it came with it. The cleaning rod is also the correct one for the T-26 and it took several years for me to find one for this rig. The ammo is a whole other matter. 9mm Japanese is hard to find so I make my own using trimmed down .38 special cases.

    Yes, it opens for loading the way you describe. Another cool thing about it is the side plate on the other side is hinged so you can get into the innards for cleaning or gunsmithing.
