The M1895 Nagant, or simply Nagant for short, was a revolver that was used by the Soviet Union during World War II.

Description

The M1895 could fire the 7.62x38mmR Cartridge at an effective range of up to 50 meters. The weapon had capacity for seven rounds and was notable for having a gas sealed cylinder that made use of all the gas created while firing.[1] This can be compared to other revolvers that have gas escape through the gap between the cylinder and barrel. Therefore, because of the sealed cylinder, the Nagant could fitted with a suppressor.[2]
