    Here is another one that my google-fu skills are too weak to locate. Anyone have an idea on the value of a MINT 87 with original holster?

    $500-750 depending on market and condition, if it's truly minty.

    Hammer, trigger, loading gate, etc. all have beautiful unworn straw coloration. Bluing is in better condition than many modern revolvers seen in the used rack, There are a few spots worn, mainly drag marks on cylinder. Bore is shiny with strong lands.

    FWIW, it is a Belgian made brevet, with JB reception mark.

    Gah I wish some shops locally sold the Nagant Revolver, I want one so bad! Out of curiosity does that shoot the 7.62 nagant or the other Swedish cartridge? Beautiful condition though, definitely worth a lot to the right collector

    It is indeed chambered for the 7.5 Swede, though it came with some ancient .32 S&W longs in the holster.

    Urk.
    I really like these old guns, too bad none of their generation is still available at plinker prices except the flood of USSR surplus gas seal Nagants.

    I own a Husquvarna built Swede Nagant, mine was in 95%+ condition without the original holster. I never could find the correct ammo but I did blast some .32 thru it (bulging the snot outta the brass). It was a very nice revolver and built scores better than any Russian Nagant that I've ever seen. Once I took it apart to "see the inwardness" of the device. Simple and strong with a mainspring reminiscent of Colt revolvers.

    I've only seen one other Swiss for sale at a local shop and they had it thrown in with the Russian models. I was tempted to pick it (the priced it the same as the Russian models) but I came to my senses and remembered that I only fired 12 rounds from the one I already own and I didn't need another one.

    The only ones I've found for sale were web auctions and they were priced from $400 for a beater up to $650-$750 for mint specimens with holsters.

    I believe I got 400 for the one I sold a few years ago but it had a holster that was marked 1913. It seemed like there wasn't a whole lot of demand for them on gun broker.

    Well, we shall see what the market dictates. I'm not the type to hold on to something that I would feel bad about shooting, so I picked up a 1935 Tula and placed the Swede for sale. Again forgive my lack of photography skills. The combo of flash and background washed out the straw coloring.
