    You can always tell Nagant shooters by their long pinkie nail aka extractor!

    Unless you shoot .32 long in them. Usually even the badly BULGED cases fall out of them by gravity...I only have to unscrew and flip and actually USE the ejector rod just a few times after the chambers are dirty...:p

    Which makes me wonder how many Czarist or Soviet troops or troopers actually ever screwed the ejector in in the first place, or just left it loose and ready to swing out?

    That darn ejector rod...who would have thought ANYBODY would invent or issue a SERVICE revolver slower to reload than a Colt SAA? I mean, granted, the Colt SAA was 'State of the Art" in 1873, but 22 years LATER Emil Nagant makes his ejector rod more COMPLICATED for no good reason??

    Really? When I had one, I simply pushed out the shell. Might've been mine, but I didn't even need to use the push rod.

    Do what I did , add a magazine release easy to do. If you look close at the back of the trigger guard on my 2 CZ,s you will see where I added a magazine release.

    Those are the oddest looking revolvers I've ever seen...

    I know, it's like a SA that wanted to be a DA then became a ninja. (The gas seal made it possible to have silencer installed on it.)

    The 32 longs are much quieter than the actual nagant ammo. The gas seal must really add a lot to muzzle velocity, or it is just enough to push it supersonic. I have been using 3.1 gr of 700-x but want to try trail boss to fill the case better. Does anyone have experience loading these with the plated DEWC's that grafs sells? Reloading data is pretty scarce for these.

    I just finished loading some 7.62 nagant rounds tonight....I used this data
    http://www.hodgdon.com/PDF/Trail-Boss-data.pdf
    I found that 70% case capacity with full length nagant brass (not 32-20) was 2.7 gn of trail boss and 80% was 3.0 gn, I'll report back once I have given them a try. I use the 98 gn plated DEWC from grafs.com and the brass is from buffaloarms.com (headstamp says 7.62 Nagant G.F.L.)

    Actually, I once hear that it only added about 20% more velocity (or pressure) compared to the comparable .32L. Other then the silencer part, this is where Russian roulette comes from. (since the round is almost completely hidden)

    The 7.62x38r loads make a much louder pop than the 32 smith longs which don't have the gas seal. The tokarev 1927 was in this caliber too.
