Just couldn't pass up a good deal.. My first Nagant revolver!
« on: December 23, 2014, 07:37:43 PM »
Browsing armslist when o saw an add from my absolute favorite LGS.  A quick call later and they put it on hold for me.  For the cool price of $133 out the door with holster I just couldn't say no!  To top it off, they had a 59/66 on the rack as well... All matching with tapco stock(original stock and magazine included) for $300 otd.  I figure I can hock the stock for $60 and I have a $240 all matching yugo.  It's now on layaway.  8)

Nice score!  thumb1 

Getting hard to find these anymore under $170 and yours came with a holster.  I can only make out the 4 of the year stamp but it looks like a 1944 Tula, since the hammer inside the star was distinctive for that year (according to 7.62x54r.net). 

I don't have one of these revolvers but it's definitely on my list.  There are so many interesting traits: the longevity of service, the attendant history, the odd cartridge, and the unique "sealing" mechanism.  8)

You're going to feel like such a stud when you whip that thing out at the range. They're a riot to shoot!

Very nice scores!

 I find the revolvers grossly under powered and awkward as all hell in the hand.  But its a neat item to have.

The k98 is still in layaway.  Something happened and they now want $430 out he door for it (it was supposed to be $350). Undecided if I am going to leave it there or get it out.  I only have $20 into it.  I'll have to see how my funds play out for me.  I have until the end of January on it.

As for the Nagant.  Once I get some ammo I will definitely give a range report.  I just had a FNH hi-power show up today so I am itching to get to the range!

They're jacking up the price on you after you came to an agreement with them?
Pardon my language, but it properly expresses my feelings- that's total horse****. I would never do business with that place again. What's their excuse? Yeah and let's see this HP!

Hmmm. I can load those I think.  I load 32 Smith and Wesson (short) for a little pea-shooter I've got, and I think I can simply raise the sizer die and do the long's. 

I've been gonna get one of those old Nagants for awhile.  I shoot a lot of DA pistol, and my trigger finner is pretty tough.  I think pull on those is about forty pounds. chuckles1 jd
