    About 4 months ago every where you looked you could see Russian M1895 Nagants for sale for like $100. I was wanting to get one but just recently got my C&R License. Now it is as if they vanished. Where did they go so fast? Is there anywhere that still sells them? It is crazy how quickly they disappeared.

    Ya they are sold out sadly. It is funny, I was at a local gun show today and I saw someone selling one for $450 and thought "there is no way he is going to get that much, they sell for $100 online" than I went home and couldn't find any.

    I just bought this one private party in Arizona last week for $149.00. It is basically a brand new gun. They are out there, but you have to hunt and scrounge.

    Scrounging is part of the action.

    A whole bunch of Nagant revolvers are listed on-line, and now that you have a C&R it's an easy process (provided the seller understands the C&R) to get it shipped. I like using on-line listings as unless the owner has bugger'ed it up, you can pick the specific year, markings, features (the Nagant revolvers have some fantastic and interesting markings that make them fun to collect) you want. If you are getting your first example for your collection, then it's not a big deal.

    GunBroker, ArmsList, AuctionArms... Those are good places to start.

    Here's a site that scans for you and tracks prices: GunStockMarket: M95 Nagant Revolver
