At a table at a gunshow this weekend, this appeared.
A 1928 non-import SA marked Nagant.

The gun has what looks like blood pitting on the left side.

The cylinder has been replaced with an armorer's kit spare. These were unnumbered spares carried to repair guns in the field. My guess is that the blood pitting happened at same time the revolver was aquired by the Finns.
I wish this one could talk!

Great pickup jleiper of a tough to find Finn marked example. Like many others here I'd love to find a 1920's SA marked example.

It was, in fact, the Tanner show. It wasn't the price of a refurb, but it wasn't expensive. The dealer had a group of older revolvers and didn't really know, or really care, what he had.
I got it because it was interesting with the blood pitting and the armorer's cylinder. Any time I can get an original gun for a reasonable price, I pick them up.
