They were made for the Japanese Navy but the Navy didn't want them because they were not Japanese made ( they were made by western barbarians ), so most of them were warehoused and never issued. However some of them may have been used by Naval shore infantry. I don't know if any one knows for sure if any of the Type Ones ever saw combat or not. Very interesting story behind those guns, involves, Germany, Italy. and Japan, but way too much information for my poor fingers to type.
