Nagant revolvers are a very poorly understood series. Most people are familiar with the Russian 1895, and maybe the Swedish 1887, but they were actually really widely used. The original 9.4mm series was used by Belgium and the Luxembourg gendarmerie, the 7.5mm models by Sweden, Serbia, Norway and the Luxembourg army, a .44 series used by Brazil and Argentina, and the familar 7.62mm gas seal models used by Russia and Poland. There was even a swing-out cylinder gas seal version made in small numbers in 1910.

My neighbor has one of the Swedish Husqvarna 7.5 mm's that he is always looking for ammo for. Thing is older than him (he is at least 65) and it's still in pristine condition. I see Nagants all over the place (this shop near my scool had a display case full of them) but never really ask about them

Where do you find all these guns?

Lots of places, usually private sales with other collectors but also from a few specialist dealers. The Nagant and T-26 I got off gunbroker.com and the Jo.Lo.Ar. from Down East Trading, which operates in the US as JoeSalter.com.

Well, my Jo.Lo.Ar. arrived today and I am SHOCKED at home natural a pointer it is and how well it fits the hand. The bore is pretty pitted, but there's lots of rifling, so I may get some light 9mm Largo loads cooked up and actually try shooting the thing. The shop I bought it from even found an extra grip screw to replace the missing one at no cost - as always I'm very satisfied with Joe Salter, anyone looking for collectible guns should check them out. More pics to come.

Sweet. Tell us how it shoots when you get around to firing it

Jo Lo Ar photos.





Barrel tipped up for loading, palanca down for cocking.


Slide fully to the rear via the palanca. Because it was designed for one-handed cocking there's no provision for a slide hold-open, even in the mag.

Well, after the most drawn-out and problematic gun purchase I've ever done, I've finally received the US Krag M1898 that I bought while in Afghanistan. It's in very nice shape, and has the M1901 rear sight upgrade (as most do). I'm pretty excited to actually take it to the range if the weather ever improves.
