In 97% excellent condition, all matching & NON IMPORT marked, believed to be a WWII bringback, We have a very difficult to find late WWII, 1944 dated Soviet Nagant Service Revolver. This was made at the Izhevsk Arsenal Factory 622 after the tooling had been evacuated from Tula during 1941. This revolver is all matching internally and externally and the bore is mint as well.
This example will be extremely desirable to collectors because late WWII Wartime dated examples of Nagant revolvers that are not the turd / hack grade import marked guns are nearly impossible to locate. The Germans captured very little Russian equipment after 1942, so it is more likely that this might have been obtained by a GI right off of a Russian when they met at the Oder River in 1945. Finding this piece that is in such a pristine original condition is quite notable and it will be of extreme interest to any Eastern European area collector.
