I've been looking high and low. The only one I've found was on armslist.com by a private seller for $50. You might be able to find more on an auction website.

I've considered buying one of these myself. Every time I go to buy one I end up coming home with something else.

If you buy one, buy it for the history, because they are horrible quality handguns that are very expensive to feed. That said, I miss the one I sold.....

What?

They are not a S&W, but they certainly are not horrible quality guns. Mine's pretty good. Reliable, accuracy is ok, and the fit and finish on it are surprising good for an old Russian revolver from WWII (Mine is from 1937). The original trigger is a little heavy, but that can be fixed with a little tweaking. Right now, the single action trigger on mine is really nice.

As for the ammo, new factory ammo is about $0.44 per round, surplus is $0.34 a round, and I can reload it for about $0.16 per round.

The history and the design of this revolver is pretty interesting too.

The ammo for the Nagant m1895 is kinda hard to find now, so i guess if is possible to rechamber to another cal, i would do it.

They are actually very robust, they just have an extremely heavy trigger. Yes ammo can be difficult to find, but right now that is true of most calibers.

Palmetto State Armory is selling PPU and Fiocchi for $15 a box. Lowest price around. Be prepared for the typical glacial rate of shipping.
