Default BFPU M1895 Nagant Help

I found this Nagant revolver online for $125 and it's in battlefield pickup condition. It came from a collector who passed away who collected vet bring back/BFPU weapons. The seller says it has an excellent bore and functions properly, the only shortcoming is the finish. It's a 1940 Tula with surface pitting and 0% finish left. The barrel exterior seems to have the most putting, most of it doesn't look too deep. He said it should be safe to fire, and said to run it by a gunsmith to verify that. Should I buy it? There's also a "u-fix-it" M1895 for $95 but the cylinder doesn't cycle reliably and and it doesn't move forward like it should . What do y'all think? Thanks for all feedback!

I can pick one up at one of my LGS for $125 in excellent condition. If it was my money being spent, I would offer about $25, and buy it for parts. Better ones are out there for the money. Keep looking.

Ok what about the $95 one that has cylinder issues? It has the holster and cleaning rod. I don't have pictures of it.

It does look pretty rough but they are getting harder to come by. I can't remember the last time I saw one for sale for $125. If its a battlefield pick up then it won't have import markings which is a plus. I tried searching gunbroker for m 1895 nagant, m 95 nagant and did't find much. Then I searched for nagent revolver and found a few They seem to be going for between $200 and $400 in 95+ condition. If its worth $125 to you thats all that matters.

About 6 or so months ago they were on slick guns for 100$ shipped. Haven't seen them in awhile though.

Any firearm with that much exterior damage will have internal damage as well. I would pass on this one. I see some real nice ones at gun shows for around $200 dollars. As some one posted this is a $25 dollar parts gun. Maybe?

I got an email from him after I told him I was skeptical of the pitting on the barrel. He gave me his track record and assured me it was ok to shoot. He graduated from the Colorado School of Trades Gunsmith School in 1971 and worked with Remington from '71 to 2005 as a Warranty Gunsmith and is called to be a firearms and ballistic specialist in court cases. I'm gonna trust him due to his past and present experience and expertise. I'm pretty sure I'm gonna order it Friday or so.

If it is posted on the "Web" it is true.

I trust what he says. He even told me where to look for proof, he's in all the Remington catalogs from pre-2004 in the back under warrant gunsmiths.
