    There have been some complaints about the conversion cylinders, especially the 32 ACP ones. Apparently, because of the gas seal mechanism and the extended neck cartridge case, the forcing cone on the Nagant is not as sturdy as on a conventional revolver. I read about it in an old post somewhere on the Firearms Forum (not sure which sub-forum).

    nagant ammo looks funny with a recessed slug, ( kind alike a wadcutter ) and some have a heavy crimp at the mouth of the brass to fit the forcing cone for a gas seal.

    Yep, looks like this. The gas seal system works by shoving the entire cylinder forward until the front neck is engaged before where the bullet starts.
