Papa's B-Day Gift--Nagant
Papa (my father in law) has a birthday on Friday, and we got his present in last night. The new revolver is actually rather impressive for a Russian piece. I may have to pick one up for myself. The ammo isn't dirt cheap, but it's cheaper than a lot of ammo out there. I think it would actually be a good little trail gun where predators aren't a concern. I haven't shot it yet, though. I'm sure he'll let me put a few rounds through it.
The finish was good, double action trigger is awful, and the sights are tiny. Honestly, though, I'd buy 4 of these before I bought a Phoenix, Jimenez, or other zinc-alloy gun. I figure, worst case scenario, I can use the front sight for some damage!
