    I have one and I like it a lot.
    It is my current housegun.


    Anyone else here have one of these?

    I have one and enjoy shooting it. It is a pretty accurate little shooter. Odd ammo. Love the history of these.

    It feels really good in the hand too.

    Mine is my favorite 'plinker'. Very easy to reload for, using reformed .32-20 brass. Makes it as cheap to shoot as a .22.
    A buddy has three of them.

    I agree about the 'gas seal', and don't bother trying to make ammo for it. My handloads are shorter 'standard' type loads - no gas sealing. Still, the Nagant has very little cylinder/barrel gap due to it's design.
    I have very big hands, and the smallish Nagant grip works well for me.
    Mine has fairly decent trigger pull in single-action, and typically heavy in double-action - but no worse than a couple other pistols I have.
    One thing is sure - NEVER will a Nagant "just go off!" It MUST be a very deliberate action.

    I'd love to get a second and convert it to .22LR. :)
