M1895 Nagant, '32 Tula

Post by jaytex1969 »

Just recently snagged my first ever sealed can of Nagant ammo, so I dug the revolver out of the safe for a bit of sunlight.

I hemmed and hawed over getting one when they were common for $100, then they disappeared. About 2 years later, I scored this one face to face for about the same, so I feel fortunate. I did have to acquire the holster with tools separately, though.

It still has a receiver import stamp, but a "more reasonable" vertical run instead of ruining the original markings.

I've never fired this one but hope to remedy that soon.

Nice looking Nagant. Glad you found some ammo for it. Let us know how it performs at the range. Thanks.

Wouldn't mind having one, but that'll probably never happen as I won't pay 2020 prices for it.

It does look like it should be slinging some lead, though.

After my heart operation I could not go to the range for 6 mo. so I got a pellet versions to fire in the basement. A pellet Nagant revolver:

Funny thing its about as strong as a real pistol using cheep Prvi ammo. Anemic little suckers. I also got a Webley pellet revolver and the bb 45 1911s for fun.

Pictures remain intact in this old post of some nice Nagants:
To old to fight and to old to run, a Jar head will just shoot and be done with you.
