    Default Special gift Nagant 1901

    Here are few pictures about Nagant revolver with interesting history. Revolver was originally a special gift to Colonel/Senator Alexander Maximillian Strandman. It's one of the pearls of my collection.

    Wonderful piece!

    Even without the engraved back strap plaque it would be a fine old Nagant. I like your holster as well.

    Just a beautiful example of history. I'd never sell this piece.

    It's written that "Prize for shooting to юнкер (Junker was the rank for a volunteer at military service (вольноопределяющийся, volno-opredelyayuščiysya) in the Russian Navy in 19th and 20th centuries).

    2. We’ll go after terrorists wherever they are — at an airport – O.K, at an airport. If we find them in a toilet, in an outhouse, we’ll do them in right there. That is all. Case is closed.
    "..Мы будем преследовать террористов везде. В аэропорту — в аэропорту. Значит, Вы уж меня извините, в туалете поймаем, мы и в сортире их замочим, в конце концов. Всё, вопрос закрыт окончательно."- В. Путин.

    There were prize pistols and revolvers and there were also registered pieces given to graduates of various schools. This is the first prize Nagant I've seen, thanks for sharing it with us!

    Here is another prize revolver.

    Browning 1900 and 2 1905s. The number under the crossed rifles is the registration as to whom in was presented. The records are said to still exist, but I haven't seen them.
