    I am interested in getting a Nagant revolver and have read that you can shoot .32 longs or .32 H&R mag. in this pistol. Is this a safe procedure? I know the 7.62 Nagant rounds are expensive and the one I was going to order doesn't have the .32 ACP cylinder. A co-worker told me that Inter Ordnance tested the other .32 cal. revolver rounds in a Nagant and all worked fine. I would also appreciate any info on where I can find the .32 ACP cylinders for this revolver. If the other cartridges are risky I'll will probably get the proper replacement cylinder.

    I have also heard that the 32 S&w or 32 H&R Mag will fire safely. However, you may get some split cases due to the nagant's cylinder design. Regarding the 32 ACP cylinder, some have said it was easy to install and others have said it required considerable modifications to the gun. If you reload, 32-20 brass works well.
