Yes, Trip286, the Brits had a suppressed revolver with a shroud mechanism that contained the report from the cylinder gap. It wasn't a gas seal in the same sense as the Nagant, but it was modified for suppressor use.

A quick on line search shows up a couple of other revolvers modified for suppressor use. Semi-auto pistols with proper suppressors make more noise from the slide operating than from the report. A suppressed revolver leaves no cases. The biggest problem with mounting a suppressor on a revolver is keeping the front sight intact.

Maybe he's watch too many movies but you havent read enough firearms history...

That being said, I've fired a suppressed nagant...and it was by far the quietest gun i've ever seen. It was straight up funny how quiet it was. You honestly hear the hammer fall, then the bullet hit.

Neat lil' piece of history.

Yeah I've also been eyeballing this little gem for awhile. Just getting the funds and dealing with a transfer. I'm in the process of getting my own FFL then I won't have any issues. I've seen some Tula manufacturing ones online for around 110+ shipping.

A little more on the suppressors.
I found out that Smith and Wesson actually made a model 29 in extremely limited quantities capable of being suppressed. Like 500. The intent was to send them to Vietnam for the poor souls who got the fantastic duty of going into the VC tunnels. The idea never got off the ground, and I think many of them were destroyed.

Hell I'm pretty new to gunsmithing but I'd assume with the right machines and talent you could mod anything for a suppressor. I know a guy locally that does. I'll email him and see what he says.

I don't see why not, but I can see where the effectiveness could vary immensely.

Everything is possible with imagination. Walt Disney said so!

I want a suppressor for my 91/30, that will attach using the same type of lock as the bayonet. As far as I know, those only exist as full custom jobs. I've seen one once on youtube, but can't find anything else at all on them.

Trip can't you get a cylinder in .32 for the Nagant revolvers? I've got one with all the accessories for like 90 bucks with very little use. I paid the extra $5 or $10 for the hand pick.
I did shoot it & personally I think it sucks. One of the worst revolvers I've ever shot. but world war 2 firearms are only getting harder to find & more expensive. So get'em while there hot.

I have two 1895 Nagant pistols, both what collectors call "refurbs" and both good shooters. First one is a 1944 Model, was missing some parts and I got it very cheap, ordered parts and made it servicible. Second is made in 1932 and is pretty, tight and servicible in every respect. I got a box of Privi 7.62X38r ammo ordered with pistol and bought another box at a local gun store. Read on forums how to reload with .30 Carbine dies and been doing that but the other reloading method is with Lee Nagant Dies and Starline 32-20 brass, readily available. I just today ordered the latter. I load Hornady XTP JHP bullets, resized to .309 (Lee Resizer). standard small pistol primer, 3.5 grains of "Trail Boss" gunpowder and into Privi fired brass. Accurate for sure !
