I bought one of those aftermarket cylinders for the Nagant pistol, the ones that say they can shoot .32ACP. Then I discovered a gunsmith in Texas who claimed they could re-bore the aftermarket cylinder to be able to handle all of the rimmed .32 rounds as well as the ACP round for which it was designed. And they did! I routinely shoot .32H&R Magnum rounds through the new cylinder without buldging or split casings or any other issues, and they work just great.Does a semi-decent defense round exist for this gun? Even the Russian stuff I've been able to scrounge is semi-wadcutter.
I truly can't imagine this weapon in war, especially in a trench. I love this gun, but it doesn't scream "power".
