    The cool factor for the nagant revolvers is the fact that they can be suppressed. One of the very few revolvers in the world that can be.

    I've worked some of the details out with my coworker. He is willing to do a straight trade for one of the pistols for my Savage axis in 30-06. I'd have to add money if I wanted both. I'm more leaning towards the walther seeing how it is cheaper and easier to find ammo for.

    The P38 ammo (9 mm) is relatively easy. I would suggest trying out both 115 and 124 grain ammo but make certain that it has a regular ogive as these pistols were not designed for hollow points and a slightly hotter 124 may well be optimal. Would also suggest changing out the recoil springs, the Walther has two. I have a relatively unusual Nagant (the "Sport Model") which is SA only with target grips. Enjoy both if you get them. Dave_n

    So I got the go ahead from the wife. We are meeting up with my coworker on Tuesday and I am trading my 30-06 Savage axis with Bipod for his Walther. My wife wasn't sold on the Nagant or for paying additional money for both, so I get the Walther. She at least said it looks cool, and her initial thought about it was that it looked like something the Nazis would have used.

    Pretty sure that's a post war example since they didn't mark them Walther during the war. If it has any issues Invest in New springs from wolf and it should run fine.

    I've already been told by the current owner that it's a post war model. I was just adding my wife's comments. I'm doing my research, according to my coworker it's a post war Czechoslovakian pistol. Once I see it up close I'm going to check the S/N, but I think I can see an importer mark on the front of the grip under the trigger guard.
