Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

Nagant revolver

#1 Post by Mark AP » Tue Aug 01, 2017 4:55 pm

I will be post photos later today. I don't know much about these pistols.. but I now have one, let me know what you think. (I'm pretty sure it's a non refurb as there is no refurb marking to be found) may someone that knows a thing or two can say a few words about it. Thanks.

1944 Izhevsk without the nasty billboard import markings, nice. As you said I am not seeing a refurbishment marking anywhere, I'll wait to see what the Brain Trust has to say.

I see the import markings on the barrel, I like it better than mine, mine has the import markings partly covering the arsenal information.

Yes, nice small import mark. I never gave much though about these pistols in the past but now that I have one I like it.

Based on the wear on most of the stampings and the metal finish and texture suggests it's been sanded and refurbed. Inbelieve it just didn't get marked with a refurb mark. Does appear to have a lot of Izhevsk marked parts which it a plus. Still a nice example, congrats.

I had doubts about it being a refurb or not, the finish is very nice and with it being 1944 i though I might get lucky. I do agree that it's likely a refurb that never got the stamp. Thanks for the info.

I've got one very similar to that. Don't get to shoot it much.

The only issue with these Is you can't hit anywhere close to where your aiming! Nice pistol

I must respectfully disagree. It is true that you might not be able to hit anything initially with a Nagant revolver, but once you get the hang of them they are quite accurate. I can usually get about 3" groups at 25 yards firing two handed double-action (slow-fire).

I have said elsewhere (and continue to stand by it) that a Nagant revolver is the greatest double-action dry-fire practice device ever invented. After about 10,000 DA dry-fire cycles you will have strengthened your index finger to the point that shooting a Nagant double-action is no big deal.

However, the big payoff is that any other double action revolver you pick up thereafter will appear to have a custom (light) DA trigger pull. Extensively dry-firing a Nagant dramatically improved my DA shooting with Colt, Ruger, and S&W revolvers with respect to both speed and accuracy.

Nagants are not inaccurate, just clunky.
