    Default Nagant

    Going through the collection, doing inventory, taking updated pics & deciding what stays and goes & decided I needed to take updated pics of an old favorite.

    Anybody see another? Anything similar?

    I think this is a one-off, but whenever someone says there is only one....a dozen pop up....

    In any event, enjoy the pics!

    Don't have one of those in the collection yet but that is an absolutely gorgeous Finn capture Pahtu. Thanks for sharing.

    Wouldn't this be a Russian recapture? This is probably more rare than my SA Finn capture with original bluing intact. Cool, thanks for sharing it.

    I remember you showing this before but always enjoy the new pictures.
    I have never seen a recapture Nagant before. Really interesting.

    Very nice example Pahtu, and the photos, amazing. I always liked the Nagant, so much so I picked up a '37 Tula 18 months or so back. A very enjoyable revolver to shoot despite the stiff DA. Very accurate too when fired SA.

    Thanks for the great pics.

    Wow amazing. Never seen one as nice or with an SA stamp. How do you tell that it's a Russian recapture?

    Very nice!! 1932... Tula... [SA]... Also looks to have a refurbishment stamp as well - probably refurbished prior to the Finn's getting their hands on it. But... really... it's just junk. I will take it off your hands... You may send it immediately...

    But really...

    I have looked every since you first posted this one of a kind and have yet to find number two! Very neat piece of history!

    Thanks! - A member was selling off a portion of his collection several years ago, I remembered he had this revolver....sent him a PM and much to my surprise it is now mine - I believe it to be a oddball of sorts - Captured by the Finns, recaptured by the Soviets - Went through their refurbishment program, imported into the U.S. and then appreciated by a few folks who like odd and uncommon things/happenstances.

    Pahtu.

    No you ninny, it stands for Springfield Armory, where it was refurbished in the 1950s. It was probably American G.I. Issue in Korea.........

    SA could be Single Action as well.

    Thanks for the pics Gary I always enjoy looking at your Nagants. I have seen a number of Finn capture Nagants but I cant recall ever seeing another recapture. Denny

    Thanks Denny, I have also searched - Noticed several Nagants at shows & shops over the years(although less and less with each year), and have not seen another as well. There are some other different types of Russian built capture/recapture out there, some of those appear to be one off's as well.

    Outstanding example, well done.

    A very nice piece,its unfortunate that it probably would be appreciated much less on the Nagant forum.

    Quite possible - Very few folks on the forums would know what it is & perhaps only a couple would really appreciate the uniqueness of the piece.

    Valuable? A good example of a very rare piece that.....perhaps is not crazy valuable. Mebbe its most value is the circumstances involved in the revolvers travels in a short period of time....it's history.....

    Pahtu.
