1895 Nagant Trouble
I picked up a Nagant Revolver today at a local gun shop. It's a 1941 Tula marked handgun and came with a .32 ACP cylinder already in it. The original 7.62 cylinder, holster, cleaning rod, and ammo was included ($300.00 otd, steal maybe or just market price?). Anywho, I came home, shot a couple rounds out of the .32 cylinder and came inside to change it out for the 7.62 cylinder. This is where I am running into issues. I can get the cylidner in place but its loose feeling (I can move the cylinder back and forth on the rod). It will cycle but only if I pull the cylinder back. Only then will it push forward and create a seal. In order to cycle the next chamber I have to repeat the process. Also, when it creates the seal I can simply pull back on the cylinder and it will unseal. Its almost like the 7.62 cylinder is too small for the pistol. Help?!
