    I'm glad one guy shot down the silly ammo comments that you should not shoot X type of ammo in a Nagant. These things are very tough rifles and I have never had a problem with mine and they are the best firearms value going right now. I will take a hard second look at any of them before I shoot next time, though..

    Nothing wrong with a hard look at any milsurp. But what would you look for? Would there be any signs other than a visible crack in the metal?

    Short of having access to a magnafluxing device, visual is all you have. All my Nagants were carefully hand selected for muzzle/throat erosion, bore condition, matching numbers and overall mechanical condition and the ones I have shot have all been very accurate for a surplus bolt gun and perfect in function

    Go watch "Enemy at the Gate"
    If you have a limited number of rounds,the gun will become a club at some point. Maybe runned over?

    All I know is I got mine for $99 and my $85 Enfield (years ago) shot very well.But I already decided that it will be covered for the first few rounds
