M1895 Nagant Revolver?

Well I'm be buying a M1895 in the next couple months. But my question is, What Manufacter should I buy it in "Tula or Izhvesk"?

I have an Izhevsk 1945 Nagant revolver. I re-chambered it to .32-20. The ammo has to be loaded approximately 1/10" short , so the bullets will clear the back of the barrel. The original 7.62x34r ammo will still work in it. Accuracy is 3-4" at 25 yards with Hornady 90 gr HBWC Bullets.

Mine is a Tula but I don't think there is a nickle's worth of difference between the two.

Cheaper then Dirt sells reloadable ammo cheaper then you can buy brass. But I already got a supply of 32-20 brass to convert before I found that out.

It's a fun shooting little gun. Also fun to reload.
