    anyone got a pulse on their real purchase value?

    I already have 2.. 1 i've had for decades.. one I got for a swinging deal earlier this year ( or late last year maybee? ).. anywhoo.

    I just stumbled on a local seller ( 01 dealer.. not some street corener shady sales offer ;) ) that has not 1 but 2 nagant revolvers and is highly motivated to sell them... I get the idea he is not into old or C&R arms.

    anyway.. while I don't NEED another nagant revolver any more than i need another bolt action shotgun ( I buy these whenever I find them at shows, etc.. usually for 50$.. figure what the heck.. a good boat oar costs nearly that much.. and these make smoke and go bang... :) thus I have more than a lifetime supply of various flavor bolt scatterguns.. ).. anyway.. I'm thinking I can get these 'right'.

    While I'm not into selling guns... these 2 nagants could be medium term investment that I could then flip to buy more goodies later. heck.. out of the 4 I could keep the best 2 and sell the lessers.. thus upgrading my colelction in the process and weeding out the lesser grade in exchange for some other weapon that desires to be in my collection... a real win-win, if I can swing it.

    so.. what doth the people here feel realistic sales prices on nagant revolvers are? from there I can figure a % of that #. and then have built in equity.. etc..

    Seems like I saw an import dealer selling them w/ammo for pretty cheap. I'm thinking about $150. or so. Got a mental block going. Who's that importer from Arizona?

    I essentially won mine by bidding on it at a for-charity auction some years back. About $100 for a 1941 example - refurbed with later style front sight blade, inconspicuous import marks, holster, screwdriver, cleaning widgets and so forth, so I guess I'm at least a few bucks ahead on that one. Same auction I bid $100 on a Finnish Civil Guard Mosin 28/30 and won it too, so it also came home with me. Suspect they're going for a bit more these days.

    My Cabela's has lots of them. Since every thing else is sold out they have the counter display setup with a bunch of them. I think they were $149. They had them on sale last year under $100. They looked to be in good condition.

    just looking around the sales boards.. I see that the prices vary from about 160 and up into the 500$ range ...

    I saw the one listing at buds for 130$.. but they are out of stock.

    even if I used that as a low # and added 25$ shipping as a baseline. looks like a starting point of 150$ and down are in the 'deal' range.

    I no longer have any Nagants, but when I bought the two I had, I paid $74.00 each ($79 for only 1) from AIM surplus. Of course that was 5 or 6 years ago:rolleyes::D.

    The price of a non-import never rebuilt M95 Nagant revolver can be two or three times the price of common rebuilt and import marked Nagants.

    Dragged three of them in excellent condition around for a couple of years at my gun show table. Well built, no collector value, no ammo available. Absolutely no buyers at $100, finally sold at $65 each.

    One of the C&R sites I look into from time to time has a 1936 Tula non-import stamped example for $395, but then they seem to have had it for some time now without any bites.

    yep.. priced high doesn't = value.

    my idea is to not pay any more than I could unload it for in a reasonable market... and hopefully pay less..e tc. thus both enhancing my collection, AND being able to get a lil more out of it. One of mine is an earlier date.. inthe teens.. the other is a 43.. I'd like to end up having earlier units..e tc..
