Default A New family member and an early Christmas present!

Well, Yesterday, and today I went to the North Atlanta Trade Center gunshow, and I saw some things, including a vet bringback PPsh-41. I managed to find a few things yesterday, but today was my favorite find, despite the fact I gave up my Ex-Sniper mosin for it....

But, I'm proud to say, I am now the owner of a Nagant Revolver!

I traded my Ex-Sniper 91/30 for a 1936 Tula 1895 Nagant. The pistol was originally $170, but the guy, Frank of Coyote Arms out of Newnan, GA, wanted an Ex-Sniper 91/30 so he could make a PU sniper. I had just the thing! and I got a Nagant out of him and I added a 20 so he wouldn't be bummed out (He actually needed 10 as part of the trade). and that concludes that.

The Nagant is in good condition. It has Wood grips, opposed to Bakelite ones. It was SMOTHERED in cosmoline. Luckily, Kerosene came to the rescue! I managed to clean it up.

Expect pictures later!

E, private purchase by Bulgarian officer? Standard Bulgarian issue? Commercial purchase? I know that Bulgaria adopted the Luger, but no clue as to before that. Black powder or smokeless?

Another bump, but here's the Nagant, after I scrubbed the cosmoline off of it.

Commrcial purchase. Custom Belgian Nagant in black powder with wonderful scroll work. Shows its age, but for $200...couldn't beat it.

Nice revolver. I have seen these a few times at the local GM store for around 179$, but I never bought one. They used to carry the 7.62 x 38mm ammo for it, but not anymore. I know it is fairly easy to order away for though. Did you shoot it yet?
