I would like to start a picture contest like some of the ones I have seen at other forums. This is just for our members though. No prizes, just for the fun of it. We will take entries for the remainder of the month and I will host a voting site starting on Oct. 1. Winners will be posted and featured on the 11th of Oct. These must be your guns or guns that you have owned. Nu nudity or lewd images and as always, all HPFF Official Rules and Regulations apply.

This will be my Un-official entry to get things started.

A few of my Mosin Nagants and Nagant Revolvers shown with a Crate of 20 Mosin Nagant M91/59's.

I only have one Mosin which also accounts for the extent of my C&R collection too. The only pics I have are the first I took of it. As soon as I take a new one, I'll post.

The Nagant 7.62x38 is actually a low-power cartridge. The diameter is close to a .32 cal and in fact the .32 S&W Long round can be fired from this weapon (except that the cases will bulge, causing the removal of brass to be a bit stiff). The unique part about this pistol is that the casing actually extends PAST the bullet, with a machined lip around the opening. Upon firing, the revolver assembly actually moves forward to mate the lip of the brass casing to the barrel, creating a seal where the gasses do not escape from between the chamber and the revolver assembly (like in most designs). This was designed to maximize the combustion of powder to give that extra "oomph" to the round, but it created one other unique element: This is the only revolver in mass production that can be fitted with a silencer/supressor.

This was the issued sidearm of the Russian, and then Soviet, armies up until the end of WWII. By then, advancements in arms FINALLY caught up with Red Army admins, and they started implementing weapons like the Tokerav (which was LIGHT YEARS ahead of the Nagant Revolver in terms of power) and the CZ52 later on.

I actually had to sell this one a while ago, and I'm looking to buy another one ASAP. You can get them from J and G sales of Prescott, AZ for about $100, but it's kind of hit-or-miss on the quality. Usually their stock is pretty good, but Kripp would be the guy to get you an assured good condition one :D. their accuracy is "ok", and they're only single action with a HELL of a draw weight, but they're rock solid. The reason they're so cheap is that the Red Army produced literally Hundreds of Thousands if not millions of these things (actual data on how many were produced is in question since during the Eastern Push, manufacturing was informal and not documented as well as later during the war). They can still be found in service with railway employees in the Eastern Bloc, in the Siberian regions such as Triblisk and Magadan (where the famous "Road of Bones" was built by political prisoners during the Stalin Regime) where gun laws are far more lax and things are a bit more "wild west", and just about anywhere Communist support was given. Many Americans first got exposed to these revolvers during the Korean War, and then Veitnam. And, it was said that Nelson Mandella was accused of being armed with a Nagant when he was arrested and jailed without cause for decades (although nearly every report backs that he was not armed when the South African gov't police at the time arrested him). Many of these pistols, along with SKS rifles and Mosin-Nagant 91/30's and M44's, were sent to various South American countries during their revolutions against Fascist rulers in the late 40's to the early 80's. There are even some Taliban fighters who have been found sporting the nearly 100 year old pistol!

So, if you're looking for a bit of working history, this pistol would be the one to get!

Actually they can be fired in double action, but your finger will hate you for it, the trigger pull is insanity! I got my Nagant for $100 OTD with the holster and that good stuff and shoot .32 Short and .32 Long out of it with no problem. It has no real practical purpose, but it's a lot of fun to shoot!

I sit and watch TV with my Nagants in my hands. I dry-fire them double action hour after hour. I've got the strongest trigger fingers on the planet!
