The rather prolific Soviet sidearm, this unique little revolver continued to see service in spite semi-auto designs like the Tokarev being fielded. Chambered in 7.62x38R, the cartridges have deep seated bullets. The Nagant’s cylinder moves forward, sealing the entire setup. This makes it a very clean shooting revolver but also very awkward and annoying to load, eject and reload.
They are fairly cheap on the surplus market; usually $85 to $120 depending on condition and who’s selling it.
