Default 1925 Tula

I set up a trade on Armslist with a guy in St. Louis. He had a run of the mill 1943 Izzy 91/30 in great condition & wanted my Mossberg. Made the trade & went on our merry way to the next trade/meeting. This one was to be my Marlin Model 60 & a bubba'd Mossberg sweet 16 16 ga. They lopped off 5" from the barrel! Nothing but a straight up scatter gun now, but still fun to shoot for his 91/30 in an ATI Montecarlo stock w/ bipod. He never showed up. Sort of pissed me off some. This was a 3 hour drive one way. Dejected, we stopped off at Cabelas. She spotted a display of MN revolvers & found one she liked so I gave her the guns & she worked a trade for the revolver. She is a happy girl now & when mama's happy, everyone is happy...lol.

So here it is, her first MN and first handgun in general.

Is my research right thinking this is a 1925 Tula refurb with force matched numbers?

I gave it an hour of cleaning to get to this point. I'll strip it again & detail. I just wanted to get it shooting to check it put so when I'm inside again I can adjust whatever may need it. But with only 5 moving parts, there isn't much to adjust. I will be giving it a trigger job to shorten the mile long and lighten up the 1/2 ton pull. 'Pasha' as the wife has taken to calling it, won't just be a good looking vet, it'll be a very nice shooter in the end.

Very clean 1925 Nagant pistol... very interesting round. Owned a couple over the years and fed them a diet of more 32 longs than the 7.62 Nagant.

They are Nagant pistols, not Mosin-Nagants... Sergei Mosin had no hand in the creation of this revolver design. It was designed by Emile and Leon Nagant whose rifle design was merged with Sergei Mosin's to become the Mosin-Nagant rifle

very nice example.
