I was bored this afternoon, so I went to a pawn shop near where I live and found an original 1928-dated CCCP Nagant for $150. Finish is 60-70 percent and no import marks. The pawn shop owner said he believed it was a bring back but was not sure from what war. He said the man who sold it was in his early 70s. What are these typically worth? I have not seen very many originals. I paid $125 for a 1939-dated refurb last year.
You just never know when you'll find something. All I planned to buy today was some beer to drink later tonight and I ended up coming home with a Nagant and a six pack of Sam Adams!

Sounds like a good one, easily worth what you paid. Still got the round front sight? Doesn't happen to be Finnish marked, SA in a box, does it?

No SA markings. It does have the round front sight. It has a letter similiar to a "K" in an oval above the trigger guard on the right side. There is another letter that I can't make out in a circle above the right grip.

After taking the cylinder out, I did find one strike against it. The cylinder does not match although it is a Tula cylinder. But I'm not complaining. I doubt there are that many original all-matching 1920s era Nagants out there considering most were rebuilt.

Original would be the half-moon....and later refurbishment would be the stepped version.
