Pray tell, how do you get the S&W .32 Longs to work in the .22 LR cylinder and barrel?Hi Hoffy,
Try Joe our resident Nagant specialist. I'm sure he has a case or two in the bunker!
I saw two about four years ago for $50 each, the same guy had a short barrel Nagant for $39 out the door! Little did I know that I could shoot 32 S&W longs in it at the time!
Kicking myself in back side AGAIN!
I'm sure a visit to Joes bunker would be like a visit to Disneyland for a Nagant nut like me!
Best to all,
To wax the .22's you gotta help wax the rest, plan on longer or bring more!Quote from Jleiper,
The other thing is thats Point's right, one reason they are hard to find is I have taken a lot of them off the market. I think I currently have 11.
I have bought two Nagants from my pal, I know he bought the Nagants for $39, he encouraged me to buy a few too at the time.
I could have bought a 22 & a short barrel revolver for the same dealer at a show for $70 out the door!
Nowthat gas is cheap a few of us,can drive out to see you & wax your examples.
If four of us come out it should only take about a week !
As far as I'm concerned they have already dried up. Finding non-rearsenaled guns has gotten to be very difficult in the last few years. I now find them in collections and estates that are being broken up - and that means paying real money for them.Morning jleiper,
I picked up my first M-1895 (a 1944 Izzy) about year ago and just in the past few months started to reload ammo for these unique revolvers. In the past two months I've purchased two more -- a 1926 Tula and 1938 Tula.
Good ammo supply means that they are going to the range with me quite often ! ! And a very nice addition to my M-N rifles too.
Do you forsee these revolvers "drying up" in the near future ? ? If so, should one consider picking up a couple more -- while still available and cost-effective ?
Thanks ! !
###########################If the cylinder of the gun is original it is not a true gas seal cylinder. The cylinder merely moves up to the face of the barrel stub. I have seen only one .22 conversion where there were interlocking surfaces on the face of the cylinder and the barrel face to create a gas seal.
