Nice score on the Nagant pistol. I got to fire one a few weeks back and it's a fun weapon to shoot, albeit easier when you do it single-action. I tried double-action once and ended up completely missing the target...at 25 feet no less. I do like how the cylinder moves forward to seal at the barrel.

A coworker has one and rechambered it to .38 just for practice purposes.

Nice looking Nagant. I want to get one of those too. Should have already. There is a gun show in the area next month, I'll go over and see if anything follows me home. I am specifically looking to pick up a nice CZ-82, and maybe a P-64 too.

But your Nagant looks real good. I have read on other website forums about that gun. Seems lots of people have tried several different .32 cal types fired unconverted. You might do some google searching and find more info. I saw where some have even tried 32 Auto with some success. I don't know if that is so. I guess if you don't need to reload, then case streatching or splitting would not be a big concern.

Thanks. It is a fun little shooter. I like the history of these guns.

The CZ82 are great guns. I have one that I Duracoated and put Marschal grips on. Looks brand new. They are one of the best deals out there. Let me know how you like them after you get them.
