    Really lame question: What is it?

    Well, duhhh Ranger.... It's a gun!

    Ok... I was afraid to ask same question. Thought the stamp would give it away. I'm wondering if it's russian or British? The 1 on the date stamp looks european, but what do I know.

    LOL...

    It's a Russian Nagant 1895 revolver.

    The date is 1943 and the symbol is the factory's.

    I'm going to have to get some ammo after this weekend for it.

    I have to work this weekend.

    I'll try some .32 long out of it and see how it shoots, then I'll order some 7.62 Nagant for it.

    I guess mom's right I need to get back to the optomitist.

    Let us know how she shoots.

    If your wondering, the Symbol in it is a "Tula" factory symbol.

    Tula is THE best Russian arms maker. They made SKS's, Nagant, and currently making Russia's AK's and PKM Machine guns.

    And if your wondering the the little square box above the Tula marking with a line in side of going from the upper left corner to the lower right corner is, that means the gun was refurbished (sometimes with new barrels) at the Tula factory sometime in the past.

    Heres a pic of that little box Im talking about:
    (Hope you dont mind me using your pic for it)

    If you find any Russian gun without that box, the gun is worth about 10-15% more than a refurbished one.

    Its still a wonderful firearm. I plan on getting one when I get my C&R renewed.

    Thanks Sig229!

    I was wondering what that little symbol was. It's got symbols everywhere on this revolver. I'll have to do a little homework to see what they all mean.

    I cannot wait until monday to see how it shoots.

    There is a link for some ammo for it in case ya need it. pretty expensive stuff. That revolver has to possibility to be silenced better than most, since the cylinder gap doesn't really exist.

    A pretty cool piece of history, congrats.
