    I've been eyeing the Nagant revolvers for awhile now, and I think I'm going to order one this week. My only concern is that the bores are dark. Is this a big deal? I figured for $80 it probably doesn't matter, but figured I'd ask here first. Thanks guys.

    Is it $80+shipping+transfer?
    I sell them for $110 normally. You can check them out before you buy if you are ever in Vancouver.

    Yep, $80 + shipping + transfer + $10 hand select fee. The total for two would be about $250 after everything. I live in Longview, so I'm only about 45 minutes north of Vancouver. Do you have any in stock, or would you have to order them from somewhere?

    I have 3 in stock right now.
    I normally try to have at least 3 on hand all the time.

    I've got one of these and am something of a Nagant fan. They're rather cool. Extremely solid and reliable, clearly built to last. But as with any used gun, get the best possible bore, as Nagants are generally reasonably accurate guns, but I've had one with a rather worn and very pitted bore and it was pretty hard to hit anything at all with it at a good distance and I'm a halfway decent shot.

    Keep your eye out for the .32 conversion cylinders that are around from time to time. You lose the gas seal properties of the pistol, but can shoot cheaper for it.

    Yep, but keep in mind it can take a bit of fitting to get the .32 acp conversion cylinders to work properly.
