wheres the best place to get a nagant revolver?

If you really have to have one, you'll probably have to pay a premium on Gunbroker. None of the usual places like AIM Surplus, SOG, Century, etc... have had them for quite a while. The endless supply of cheap Nagant revolvers has dried up.

Here is one for $225.


Empire Arms is a very reputable dealer, with a no-questions-asked return policy.

It wasn't that long ago when they were only $59 each. They aren't evry practical, ammo is rare and overpriced, and lack power. I wouldn't give anywhere near $200 for one. You can still find a decent used .38 for Less than that pretty easily if you look around.

ISC, I think that you may misunderstand the allure of the Nagant revolver. It's certainly not an everyday shooter, but it represents an interesting bit of history.

Less than a year ago, they were cheap, but that was when gobs of recent refurbs were being imported. Those are all sold, so now it's all older guns and whatever is on the secondary market.

Sure, you could get a .38 for the same money, but that's an apples and oranges comparison.

i want one just for the way it works, i think its a cool(if ugly) design.

It is a unique design.

You pick up and extra 50 fps with the design that causes the case to mate to the barrel upon firing.

I bought one around November as a cheap woods gun. Now less than a year later....forget it:D I'm going to hold off and see if the value continues to climb. I'll stick with other guns for such a function.

Weird but very robust design:)

Glad I got mine a couple years ago for $90. That's why I don't wait now when something C&R is at the distributors.

I got mine for $69.99 from AIM Surplus, but I did pay $40 shipping for 2 of them. So, my total cost was about $90 as well. Maybe Cheapshooter does the math like I do...??

J&G Has them for $99.99. Wish I had my C&R as I would like one at that price.

Curse them and their gigantic billboard on the wrong side of the gun!

Hardcase, linky no worky.

Try this one => Nagant revolver at JG Sales (http://www.jgsales.com/product_info.php/c/c-r-guns/p/russian-1895-nagant-revolver%2C-in-7-62-nagant-caliber-/cPath/290/products_id/1059)

Weird, worked for me :mad: Check out the picture at the bottom right. Rats.

This one?

$150 is the price know for those guns and with the conversion set you can shoot 32 ACP

August 25, 2010, 02:17 PM
Well, except for the fact that the J&G link provided has then for 100 bucks.

And you lose the gas seal function if you shoot .32 ACP.

August 25, 2010, 02:33 PM
There's a reloading discussion going on a thread or two down. Check out Wildalaska's posts.

Supposedly there's no gas cutting problem like there is with the .32 ACP or H&R.

I personally think that if a guy is looking for a cheap (as in inexpensive) revolver as a regular shooter, the Nagant is probably not a great choice. But it's sure an interesting piece to have in a collection.

Although there were some M1895 target pistols made. But they cost a bunch more.

The nagants will shoot 32 longs well accurately enough. And its only around 15 a box for the el cheapo 32 longs.
