    NAGANT 1895 REVOLVER 7.62X38R

    I want to buy a NAGANT 1895 REVOLVER and need some advice; the pistols I'm looking at all are in about the same condition the only real difference from what I can tell is the date stamped on them. They are 1913, 1916, 1919, and 1920

    Is one year better than the other?

    Thanks in advance...

    I think the bigger question is have any or all been refurbished or not. If I had a chance to buy another one, I would go for a non-refubished one and I would pick either the 1913 or 1916 as it has served in two world wars, plus the revolution. That's just personal preference and not from a rarity standpoint.

    I am not aware of any production deficiencies during the revolutionary period or rarity due to production stops but either could be possible for the 1919 and 1920 dates.

    As mine are both refurbished and dated 1932 and 1944, I'd love to have any of the four.

    Are they Tula or Izhevsk?

    As a side note, I love shooting these. I find them to be very accurate and the trigger pull not as horrible as most make it out to be. It's just something that takes some getting used too. Privi makes the ammo and Cabelas stocks it all the time and it's relatively inexpensive. It is a bit underpowered so if you want the real deal, you need to get some surplus. I think the Privi is why a lot of reviewers consider it to be underpowered. Surplus as it was designed for is quite a bit of an improvement over the Privi.

    They would all be Tula, if I remember correctly (I haven't looked up the exact date) Izhevsk didn't start making Nagant Revolvers until the 1940s. The 1916 and 1913 have the potential of being a single action model, which in itself is pretty cool.

    Personally I would go with the 1913 or 1916 if they are all correct as I currently collect WWI firearms. That being said 1919 is a very interesting year as the revolution was going on and production likely wasn't very high. If I was still collecting Sovieticon arms, that would be a jewel to own.

    All four could be single action as they made them until 1922. Not a ton of information out there on these which is surprising. I have a Tula and an Izhevsk, the Izhevsk being the 1944 which fits late production.

    sorry for the late reply I've been out of town. They are Izhevsk. I still haven't bought one; I found a Remington 510 Targetmaster .22 for under a $100.00 but I can only get one, the Nagant or Targetmaster and I freekin' can't decide. LOL

    All of them for sale are double actions.

    You'll have more fun with the Nagant. 22's are a dime a dozen.
