3/21/18 - This is an excellent example of an original Belgian Nagant revolver, made in the late 1890s, that retains around 97% of its original “rust blue” finish. It has sharp grips and an excellent bore. Marked with 1898 date on the left side of the frame, this is the commercial variation of the M1895 Nagant made for Russian military prior to the beginning of Tula production. High condition examples are near impossible to find, being over 120 years old! This is the best one we had ever seen, and does not require a license.
