In 96% very sharp all matching condition with totally factory original finish, we have an extremely rare Non-Import Marked, Chinese Army Issued & Chinese Character Marked, Canadian Inglis Mk 1∗ Tangent Slotted High Power Pistol with a mint condition correct 1945 dated Shoulder Stock. This is all matching and the bore is mint as well.
This pistol actually made it to China, and in 1945 was issued and used there by the KMT Nationalist Army against the Japanese. It has Chinese Characters that were added to the left side of the slide. How it made it back here as a non-import is highly unusual. All of the known examples came back as imports in the 1990’s from China and looked horrible. Perhaps it was a GI bring back from China or maybe it was used by the OSS and brought back by a returning agent.
The salient point is that this is a real deal Chinese Issued Pistol that is not import marked and in very high condition which makes it nearly unique.
