The Nagant revolver, adopted by the Russian Army in 1895, had remained the main sidearm for the armed forces of the Russian Empire and, later, the USSR until the early 1930s. It also saw widespread use among law enforcement agencies.

Despite the introduction of the modern, more effective Tokarev pistol in 1931, Nagant revolvers remained in production in the USSR up until the end of the Great Patriotic War (WWII). Even after that, the revolvers, well-loved for their ruggedness and accuracy, were used by the Soviet Militia and various armed security forces for many years.

The 1895 Nagant is a 7-round revolver featuring one-by-one reloading through a hinged gate on the right side of the frame. A swing-out ejector rod is used to extract spent cartridges; when not in use, it sits below the barrel. The revolver features a self-cocking percussion trigger mechanism.

The blank-only Nagant revolver is perfect for stage and film productions, practice and recreational shooting, and as a collector's item. It can only shoot TK10 blank rounds. Combat and hunting ammunition cannot be used in it by design; thus, the deactivated Nagant revolver is sold freely without any permits or licenses required.
