Default Nagant Revolvers

Generally, they have a pretty heavy trigger when fired double action. This can be fixed with a little careful filing (check out THENAGANTMAN on youtube. he has a video on how to do this correctly). The trigger is not too bas when fired single action. There are also a few versions of the Russian model. They come in SA only (issued to enlisted), and SA/DA (issued to officers).

It can be pretty accurate depending on the ammo you used, and the condition of the gun's bore. 7.62 Nagant is hard to find at times, but there are a lot of online stores that have it now. It will generally cost about $20-$25 for a box of 50. An alternate choice would be to use a similar caliber, or reload for it. .32 S&W short, .32 S&W long, and .32 H&R magnum will all work in this gun, but will not be very accurate, and the cases will usually bulge, or split.

Here are a couple links for it's factory ammo.

Reloading is the cheapest choice in the long run, and will give you the best accuracy. LEE makes a set of 7.62 Nagant dies that work great. They work by reforming .32-20 brass (starline works best since it's rim is slightly thinner), and uses .311-.313 lead bullets. You can get plated bullets too, but I have never used them, so I'm not sure what size works best.

If you use lead bullets, make sure to take the cylinder off every 25-50 rds, and clean the cylinder pin. If you don't, the cylinder could become stuck. This happens because lead builds up on the pin after each shot. It literally only takes 2 seconds to take the pin off, so this is not a major problem at all.

The gun itself shouldn't cost anymore then $100-$120. They come with a holster, a cleaning rod, and a screwdriver. Some come with a lanyard, but mine didn't. They are great guns for plinking, and are really fun to shoot.

Here's a pic of it's special gas seal ammo.



I have shot much Privi Nagant ammo(Available in US) with good results and accuracy, reloaded the Privi brass but sometimes they split. I have the Lee dies to make the .32-20 reloads for my Nagant and although it is more to reloading them than the Privi Nagant brass, they seem to shoot just as well and are equally accurate. I reload both kinds of brass with CCI small pistol primers, 3 1/2 grs. of Trail Boss gunpowder and use Hornady .32 cal. 85 gr. JHp bullets that I have resized to .309...Nagant parts are available here and there if you google them up on the net.

Wonderful historic piece with a really interesting design. If you want something different to shoot, an interesting reloading project or just like the steampunk charm, they're great.

If you want a practical field or defense gun, you'll be far better off with a police trade-in in 38 Special.

I received one from my grandad today. His mother had it for years before she passed away. Haven't shot it yet, but I'm really excited About it. Any idea how to find out anything about the writing on the gun?

I just got one of These from my granddad. His mother had it for years before he got it...I haven't shot it yet, I'm very excited to do so...is there anywhere that I can get some details about the makings on the gun?

I actually really like the way they look.

Honestly, I know very little about the markings. I think that they may be similar to the markings on a Mosin Nagant, so 7.62x54r.net would be a good place to look.

And yes, I like how they look too.

Thats a good place to look too, and yeah many of the stamps on the nagant will mean the same as the stamps on the mosin.... same contry, same government, same factories and same language.
