Just picked this one up. Seems to be an older rework; not the newer version. Maybe at conversion from SA to DA? Here are some pics. if I can get the postings to work. I have been looking for a half-moon front sight model for quite awhile......finally found one at a reasonable price.

Assesories !! You want assesories. Just the usual holster, lanyard and wood handled screw driver (tula marked). But........these folks will back up the guarantee.

Nice! Let me know if you ever want to part with it. It would go really nice next to my 1922 Tula M91.

Nice! The PCCP mark has eluded me for awhile.
It's actually PCFCP if you want to take the mark literally. "Converting" to English, it's RSFSR, which meant "Rossiyskaya Sovetskaya Federativnaya Sotsialisticheskaya Respublika" or "Russian Soviet Federative Socialist Republic", which was the largest of the Soviet Republics.

I have an original RSFSR flag here at home, as well as 2 Kyrgyz SSR, one Georgian SSR, and one Lithuanian SSR flags, all given to me by a neighbour to my inlaws in Siberia recently.

I have one just like it dated 1931. Original wood grips, half moon sight, dull finish, and Century import mark on the barrel. These must have come from a different source than the more recent imports. Nice pistol!

Росси́йская Сове́тская Федерати́вная Социалисти́ческая Респу́блика, РСФСР

Apparently in 1922 the Nagant revolvers were made for the Russian Republic, not the Soviet Union. I've got one, too.
It was during the Civil War, and various nationalist contingents played a major role in fighting. Maybe Lenin was trying to play on nationalism, telling the non-russians that he really wasn't setting up a new Russian empire (hah!), and that the republics would be seperate and have equal powers, even in the military?
