    still waiting for my c&r and contemplating my first buy. the nagant revolver seems like a interesting piece and a great value. any feedback on this pistol?

    the 3 guns I am looking at purchasing once I get my license in are the mosin 91/30 and/or 44, the nagant revolver, and a sks if I can find a c&r eligible one somewhere.

    well i think the sks and mossin rifle would be better values. The mossin revolver is kinda a neat novelty. If you dont have any battle rifles, i woudl definatley get the sks or mossin rifle first. For good measure a mauser also, then tons of ammmo for all the battle rifles. THEN the novelty revolver.

    most of the big name online shops like aim, jg, gilberts, cdnn, centerfire etc, the lowest out there is about $199 for a yougo.

    check out classic arms 8mm mauser for $129 thats a good value right there.

    I agree, the 1895 Nagant would be a good addition to your collection but you likely would not shoot it as much. Many people shoot .32 Long or 32 H&R magnum out of these pistols but the cases do buldge some and its not that accurate. I would get a Mosin Nagant first or even spend a bit more and get a Swiss K31 with are just outstanding and very accurate rifles made like a Swiss watch, but the avaliblity of these K31's is drying up and I think Mosin's will be around for awhile.

    +1 on the K31. Course the Mosin isn't a bad buy for the price either. Don't forget to send your C&R to MidwayUSA and Brownells as they'll give you a discount.

    the K31 is near the tops for me after the stuff i mentioned, i already have had my sks for about 14-15 years, and just bought my first mauser a k98 FN/israeli .308 ..... i am not sure next if i am gonna get a 8mm mauser cheap, a nice sweedish mauser, or a K31.

    Local sports store/chain Dunhams they are widwest i think minesota, ohio, indiana, kentucky, penn etc. Not the whole country, they have had mosin rifles for a few years now, they are on sale every other week for $79. I have been meaning to get one.

    I just see the CR rifles being much closer to the level of modern commerical rifles, than i find most CR handguns to be to modern commerical handguns. I did buy the surplus P6 sig, but thats light years different than a nagant revolver.

    K31 in short would be a top contender if someone wants to get into CR stuff. I think you would get much more use from it, the swiss surplus ammo is fair priced, and very high quality form what i hear. Compared to the revolver ammo, i would never carry the mossin ... but i would hunt with a k31 or compete in vintage matches at the gun club. I just need to join its about 25 miles from my house :(

    I just bought my first C&R rifle about 2 weeks ago...a K31. I look at it this way, there will almost always be Mosin Nagants around as there were over 37,000,000 made. The K31, only 580,000. The trigger on my K31 is amazing.
