    French (Lebel) 8mm and .44 Nagant

    Finally picked up my Frenchicon 8mm Revolver, also bought a .44 Brazilianicon Nagant I'd seen. The Nagant not within my WW1 Pistol area of collecting but thought I'd branch out a bit...first pics are the 8mm, excuse the last one as it come out upside down, its were they dated the pistol, this one is 1914

    Were the Nagant pistols issued to the Brazilianicon Army? I have read about Brazilian Army personnel attached to Frenchicon units toward the end of the war acquitting themselves well in battle. New model to me. Thanks. Tom

    Tom, From what I've read they were issued to the Navy, but some say the Army too ?? There was another identical pistol produced by Simpson in Germanyicon for Argentinaicon in .440 (Argentine) Nagant.
    The cartridge was a tad longer than the Brazilian one and had a different bullet, although different name and a slight difference on the rim, the .440 case was the same as the S&W American.......
