    I must confess, I realized halfway through this project I shouldn't do it. I apologize.


    I HAD TO! So many times I'd go out of my mind trying to counter the "you can't silence a revolver" argument, I'd try to explain that you could if you use a gas-seal revolver like the Nagant. But no, people just wouldn't listen, and I had to go and actually demonstrate it.

    Purists... don't look. :eek:

    WOW! That sucker is quiet. I might have to get me one of those (Nagants) for when I move to Oregon and (legally) buy a can.

    It's awesome. You're not the first to think of it, but the first on YouTube. :)

    I like all your videos. Very no-nonsense and demonstrative.

    Thanks for the kind words!

    May I suggest an inexpensive can such as the YHM 9mm Cobra and using Mike at Tornado Technologies for threading the barrel? He did absolute top-notch work.

    Wacky or not, you'd shoot it, we all know you would. :)

    Niiiiiice. I'm guessing you used the regular 7.92 Nagant ammo and you were not involving a .32 cylinder.

    Now you've got me thinking about a Nagant, since in another couple months it will be legal for us here to have suppressors (the MO law takes effect on Aug. 28).

    Looks like you need to do some work on the trigger pull. :)

    Some neat pics in this old thread.

    It's an interesting experiment, but I'm surprised folks you talked to didn't know about the Soviet silencers. The Nagant was equipped with a variety of devices and saw very long service through the cold war.

    I do indeed use proper ammo, in this case HotShot brand.

    I like the trigger the way it is, actually. Don't know why. :)

    Cosmoline

    I showed a few people those pictures - they unanimously insisted that it was just Russian propaganda and fake. :scrutiny:

    HighVelocity

    Oh, yes, it was terrible having an excuse for another fun toy. :D

    WOW, your silenced 10/22 is ridiculous. Good work. (and I mean that in a good way, unbelievable)

    Thanks! I knew some people would eventually poke around and look at the rest of the videos. :)

    The NKVD used silenced Nagants as an assassination weapon, IIRC.

    Yeah, the Nagant is also equipped with a roughly 35 lb trigger as well :neener:

    Mine is NOWHERE near that bad. Probably around 15lb, an inch of creep, and a handful of sand. :D

    The DA trigger on my F.I.L.'s nagant is absolutely terrible. I think I pulled a muscle in my forearm trying to squeeze it...

    You must be one stout mofo to squeeze shots off like that.

    I used to make chainmail armor. My fingers/forearms are STRONG. I've not found a triggerpull that bugs me yet. :)

    Somebody said that it couldn't be done,
    But he with a chuckle replied
    That "maybe it couldn't," but he would be one
    Who wouldn't say so till he'd tried.
    So he buckled right in with the trace of a grin
    On his face. If he worried he hid it.
    He started to sing as he tackled the thing
    That couldn't be done, and he did it.

    Very cool! I see your location is "South Park", are you in Colorado by chance?

    Wow!!! That's amazing! The only thing I can hear is the hammer dropping. Other then that I would've never guessed you fired the thing in the first place! :evil:

    Fitting! Thank you! :)

    Yes indeed! Currently in the Denver area, but I'm in South Park a LOT. I go by Schaeffer's Crossing almost every day. If you're in the area, feel free to drop me a PM, you can try any of my guns you'd like!

    If you listen, you can hear the bullet hit the berm. :D

    Cool video. I was just looking at a Nagant revolver at my local pawn shop. That is one strange looking gun!
