Thanks, you really clarified the situation for me. I'm in the process of negotiating a '45 Nagant revolver, and knew surplus ammo was hard to find when not in bulk and wanted to see of I could shoot .32 without having to find an aftermarket .32 cylinder.

When I had one of these guns I shot S&W .32 long, but it was just about as expensive as the correct ammo.

Is is my imagination, or bad memory, or did someone sell a cylinder for these for .32 acp? I seem to remember that J&G offered the cylinder for sale a few years ago, for around $75.00.

Ok, thanks for all the feedback. Because of the difficulty of getting surplus ammo, should I get a CZ model pistol or another Russian surplus pistol?

You are OK. I think Navy Arms imported those for a time. They were later sold off by J&G and others. The .32 ACP proved to be too much for many of these old guns. That is why they were taken off the market.

CZs in 9x18 are good to go, ammo is plentiful.

The CZ-52 is drying up, and ammo is getting harder to come by.

New production Nagant ammo isn't horribly expensive, but the days of plinking away all day because of plentiful surplus are gone.

If I'm not mistaking, AIM has either CZ-72's or CZ-52's for $199 I think. Does anyone know if their import marks are big like on the Nagants, or along a thin piece of hard to notice metal?

My bad they have Tokarev M57's for $199. Does anyone know if they're any good?

Yep we keep Texaswoodworker around specifically for these Nagant revolver questions.

Are the Tokarevs a good alternative to a Nagant revolver?

Well it's Russian and surplus but not a revolver. So I would say if you are looking for a cheap gun then yes but if your looking for a cheap revolver than no. And I'm not saying that's the inly reason to buy them I just don't know your reason.
