Ask be again in a few months, and I will have one. :D

The ammo is a little hard to find (and a little expensive), but there are ways you can reload it. (more like taking the brass from one gun (I think you can use 32-20 brass to make nagant brass), and using dies to make it fit the nagant)

The gun itself is pretty neat. It is one of the few revolvers that can be supressed due to the type of ammo it uses, and it's sliding cylinder. I hear they are decent guns.

Accuracy varies depending on the ammo you use. Reloaded ammo, or Russan made ammo is usually more accurate. (at least thats what I hear). Other ammos can be fine, or they can make the gun shoot bad groups. (again, this is just what I hear)

Overall, it should be a good gun. You can't beat a $109-$150 for a revolver. :D

Anyone with experience with the gun, feel free to correct me if I'm wrong.

They are cheap and have a trigger pull that is awful. They are tough to reload for and the factory ammo is not much. The good news is if you know how to reload and have some .30 Carbine dies you can load it up to where its a decent ..32 handgun. You will need some .312 bullets jacketed or lead. I trim the fired Nagant brass back to about .875 to get rid of the nozzle. These full length sized in a .30 Carb. die. I use .32 H&R Mag loading data. Lee has a die set which is mostly for using the 32-20 brass which will often need .010 removed from the recoil plate so the cylinder can move forward and lock over the thick rim. Brass can be formed from the .223 as well more work. They make a fair 15 yd. handgun for thin skinned targets. Good Luck:)

I could be mistaken but I believe a Mod JonM has one, if I am right hopefully he'll be along shortly to comment. If I am mistaken, hopefully he doesn't notice.
