Nagant M1895

What does everyone think of the Nagant M1895? It seems to me the gas-sealed system would be supperior to a non-sealed pistol. I have a WWII Nagant and don't shoot it much but it still seems like a great design.

Not much, don't want one, let go with a AK pistol instead.

They lock tight when the hammer is pulled back. You are talking about the Nagant 7.62x38?

It is a clever solution to a largely non-existent problem. Other than use with a silencer the gap in a properly made revolver just is not a problem in service use. The moving cylinder adds too much complexity, cost, and potential for malfunction, to be worthwhile. There is just nor a worthwhile gain in a .32 caliber revolver cartridge.

Regular revolvers have shown themselves to be able to deliver target accuracy and much greater power without all the monkey motion. It is like the delay lock on the old 1921 Thompson submachinegun, expensive to make and when they left it out, no one noticed.
