    Default 1905 Tula Nagant...

    I finally managed to secure this Nagant revolver this past weekend. It's a Tula product made in 1905 and still in single action mode.

    I see a nice honest revolver. I assume the parts all match?
    I also like the M1922 holster and artillery tesak!

    Really nice Nagant rig! I wonder if that's a bullet mark on the left side of the barrel?

    Sounds like you have been working on getting this one for a while. It was really worth the trouble. Great Nagant.

    Wow, very nice, very early Tula!

    What's an artillery tesak?

    A short sword issued to artillery and machine gun crews. It was used to cut the traces if the horses "spooked" and tried to bolt with the gun.

    Yes Joe , it's all matching. Thanks for the model of the holster (didn't come with the pistol) and for a new word "tesak". I'd always heard of them referred to as "bebut".

    Looks like a separate barrel tube plug which would make it 1920s.

    Barrel tubes were used in mass production in USSR till 1935, both barrel tube and cleaning rod loops are secondary, primary are holster shape and suspension loops. Based on what we see it's PKKA officer's unified field equipment of 1932 Nagant revolver holster. That makes it a well worn out 1932-1935 holster.
