LMAO. I guess it depends on the officer. 2nd Lieutenants, and Lieutenants do a lot don't they? (I heard they do, but it was basically from one, so I'm not sure)

Let us know when you work out the tactical reload procedure.

I had one for a while, and got tired of paying to feed it and gave it up. Now I find myself needing one to fill out my Ruskie collection.

I'll be sure to post my results when I start reloading.

Here she is. Made in 1937 by the Tula Arms Plant. (lol, whats cool is that my grandmother was born in 1937 )

It also has as many stamps as my Mosin.

lol, it looks good with my 1939 Tula Mosin Nagant 91/30.

Very nice Aaron...

C3's correct that the DA revolvers were given to the officers and SA were given to the enlisted. Reason being, the enlisted were not trusted not to waste ammo in battle. As an fyi, there is a fella named "Thenagantman" on youtube who's got a real nice series of videos on this revolver everything from ammo choices, disassembly/reassembly, and "tuning" the trigger pull. worth checking out imo.

Thanks for the info, I'll have to look at some of his videos tonight.

Well, first thing tomorrow, I'm off to the range. I got some 32 H&R that is expensive as hell, so I'll probably just go through 25 rounds for now. That box the 32 H&R came in looks really old. It has a lot of wear on it, and some really old looking designs. The brand is Ultramax, and the box is a blueish green color with two revolvers on the front, and two crossed lever action rifles on the sides. Any ideas on the age? I'll try to post a pic tomorrow.

Never owned a Russian Nagant. Will it handle the pressures of the H&R Mag? I would think that the cases would split in the chambers. I have a 7.5 Swede Nagant. This is a very well made revolver. I broke the hand loading a .32 H&R load in that gun.
