The gas seal makes that possible. They feel great in the hand too although pretty much under powered.
Close. any revolver will accept one, but I think it's the only one that it would work on.
Yes, I did know that, and it's actually something I've been thinking over now that I live in a state that doesn't regulate forearms to the point of uselessness. I have 2 dealers in my area i can go through, and i'm now trying to decide between getting one for the .22s or one in .30 cal. Also have to decide on which of the 4 Nagants to thread if I decide to go for it. I want to keep at least 2 as close to original as possible, as i've seen what happened with the older milsurp rifles that got sporterized in the 50s and 60s, and what it did to the value of said rifles.
It's a back burner project for now, right alongside my SBS out of a 20 ga. double project. Someday I'll do the paperwork, and get around to it. Still figuring out the list for the trust, and waiting on dad to retire and move out of NY.
