|| Welcome to the Chicago Regimentals web site.
Mr. Masa Miyazaki is the president and founder of Chicago Regimentals Co. Ltd.
He started handling militaria when he was a high School student. His first overseas show was Stuttgart, Germany in 1978. After that he traveled all around Europe for two years.
He moved to the States in 1980 and attended hundreds of US gun shows in all 50 states up until 1993. After successfully dealing in militaria in the States, he moved back home to Japan and opened two retail shops in Tokyo and Osaka. He built up an administrative office in Japan's most famous country resort Karuizawa, Nagano in 1999. After he moved back to Japan, he continued to travel all over the world looking for new and interesting items. Regularly he and his staff travel to Europe more than thirty times in a year!! We are proudly recognized as one of the most active militaria dealers in the world.
We specialize in deactivated weapons from matchlocks to the latest Heckler & Koch High-tech weapons. We carry the largest selection in this field. We have over 300 types of weapons (deactivated) and 3,000 deactivated weapons in our inventory at any one time, all of which are displayed in our Tokyo and Osaka showrooms and catalogued in either hardcopy or on our web site.
Unfortunately, we do not export any of our merchandise. However we are looking to purchase items which we do not have in stock. If you visit our on-line shop, you will know what we have and haven't got in our inventory. Just click "search" to use the Keyword Search. You can enter a weapons name in English and search for it. All our merchandise is described in Japanese, but come with picture(s). We hope you will have some idea about us or at least what we have in stock. If you have something for sale or know somebody who has something which may be of interest to us, please let us know. We have a representative in the UK who has section 5 license which could allow them to purchase all kinds live firearms. They deactivate live firearms to Japanese specifications and export them to Japan. We strictly do not purchase any unregistered or questionable items.
In recent years, we have been expanding our business field into Registered Antique Firearms. According to Japanese Gun Control Law, some antique firearms are permitted if they are properly registered with the Cultural Affairs Agency and with the local Board of Education Office. There are many strict historical and mechanical checkpoints for registering as an antique firearm. We are the only specializing shop which is adapting to these strict rules for dealing antique firearms in Japan. Unfortunately, since 1975, The Japanese authorities have not been allowing to import any antique firearms from outside of Japan. For that reason, we are dealing the antique firearms which were already registered in Japan.
We are also well known as a supplier of
historical weaponry to movies, TV programs, and theatrical performances in Japan.
Our extensive stocks can be hired out for display and prop purposes.
