    It's got this in trade for two knifes I'm building. I know it's not worth much but I like it. Gonna go shoot it tomorrow if the weather is good. Just wondering anything I need to look for as far as trouble or any good things about these pistols.

    I bought one at a gun show and some jerk drilled the cylinder. So my bullets wouldn't stay in. I had to order a replacement. Mine was not re-arsenaled though. I ordered a new cylinder and it works great. Ammo is pricey. But what ammo isn't pricey?

    Could we get some closer shots of the numbers and markings?

    C3 can probably tell you without them, but us mortals need stuff to work with :p

    in my professional opinion, we need to wait for c3 :p

    looks to me like a standard nagant, should be a lot of fun to shoot.

    Its a cool old revolver to own, but 100 rds of ammo cost more than the gun itself

    .32 S&W long can also be safely fired in these revolvers, I know for a fact, because I did it many times. It is somewhat cheaper than the original, but not much.

    If I am not mistaken, there were "replacement" cylinders sold for these. They were chambered for modern ammo. That may be what you had. As far as other issues, you are going to need to do some training, like lifting weights with your trigger finger. Double action is the toughest trigger pull I have ever experienced, it must have been near 20#.

    It is a fun revolver to play with when you get the tactical speed reloading thing under control. :)

    Hey just remember, Japanese Arisakas weren't worth squat until the 90s. The value of these revolvers will be much more as years go by. I've been meaning to pick on up actually. :)

    What can you say? Typical Russian Military Surplus. It's a model M1895, so they made them from 1895 till about the 40's. The date of manufacture should be stamped on the side. If a big star is there, it was made by the Tula arsenal. The trigger pulls are really bad in double action, not so bad in single action if you cock the hammer. It pretty much feels like a .22 LR pistol in recoil. Holds 7 shots. Some had third party cylinders that were made for firing .32 ACP's. I wonder if that was robertb's problem. You can fire .32 S&W's out of it, but it will pretty much blow the cases out if you do. Also the gas seal system will not work with .32 S&W, so you will lose some ft/sec in velocity (I reload, so cases stretched out and/or cracked matter)
    Fiocchi still makes ammo for it, but it is pricey. Hotshot makes ammo for it, and it is much cheaper than the Fiocchi. There is still military surplus ammo floating around for it.

    No my cylinder was drilled out by somebody who had no clue what they where doing. They where different sizes.
