Comrade, That is a nice looking Weapon system, Moscow centre will forward your Regimental Special Department/SMERCh Duties...... nothing says Internal Security and liquidation of Enemies of the State more than 1885 Nagant Pistol ...

" Speak to the Nagant, the People's are not Listening"

Is the 7.62mm X 38mm R easy to find in the Main Adversaries Ammunition Collection Complexes?... or is it one of the re-bored Nagants Moscow Centre's ELINT has flagged up a while back?.

A "useful" Piece, at some stage this Command will need one ( de-ack of course) as a TT33 just doesn't cut it with a Colourful Hat and an unsympathetic nature.

Nice!

As my Comrade says, can you get the rather specialist ammo for that easily in the US?

We see very few inert rounds over here.

Russian surplus and comerical is readily avalible, and cheep. I don't have a "real" TT-33 yet, but do have one of the Romainian copy.

I've never fired a pistol, but I am sure you have shot plenty. How does this one shoot?

Have you got any other revolver experience you can compare it to?

I have been shooting all my life, grew up shooting a 1911a1. The nagant has a long triger pull and the recoil is almost nothing. Single action is easier to aim and fire, but in double action with the long and heavy triger pull it is a bit much. It is not what I would use if I had another choice. I have a Romainian TT-33 clone and it is much handier and if I had a choice I would rather have a TT-33 in the field "for real". I like the nagant as a reenacting weapon as you don't have to blank adapt it and blank ammo is eaiser to get as you can use 32 long in it.

How does the TT33 compare with the 1911a?

I've heard as automatics go it (the TT33) is not a particularly great pistol.

My TT-33 shoots fine, a typical John Browning copy. The ammo I have is hot, I think it was made for subguns. The kick is a bit hard with the ammo I have, but I have never had a problem with it feeding or anything like that.

I wonder if that is what people don't like about the TT33... using it with SMG ammo :)

That chimes with what I've heard. It's designed to fire the SMG ammo but it's a bit light really.

Although, I can't imagine in real life they used anything but the same ammo their men were stuffing into their spaginas.... Having read enough about what tended to happen with special ammunition when other ammunition "would fit"

That's it, there was only one type of 7.62T produced and the pistol was designed to fire it. It just would have been a bit easier to control if it was slightly 'chunkier' :D in construction.

Newtonian physics and all that....

Ahhhh so the "better" ammo will be "soft westerner made", back in the day it was designed for and used with "crazy powerful Soviet blammo"
