I would sleep with this gun! It is sexy and lethal looking. It is a perfect weight for someone with weak wrists. It is easy to aim once you've figured out the sights. It is impressive to look at and is easily mistaken for real. That is something one must be aware of. I am a target shooter and find this pistol ideal. I can shoot it free of any prop which is really nice since I don't always have a tripod or other device with me.
I recommend this a gun for women who like realistic guns and appreciate fine workmanship.. and looking a bit bad-ass!
not too loud
Best UsesI target shoot. I don't shoot little animals.

Excellent historical revolver
Excellent historical revolver. Accurate, loud enough, powerful.
If you've ever held a Nagant or seen one up close -
this thing is an excellent reproduction!

What a find, in a pellet pistol
I owned a real Russian Nagant some years ago, and even figured out how to reload ammunition for it. A very interesting concept. The Gletcher NGT pellet pistol with a rifled barrel is remarkably close to the original. The pellet variety was the one I wanted and the one I got. Shoots well in both single and double action. The trigger pull of my original was almost the same in both single and double action. A little more "authentic" markings would have added some realism, but I am not complaining, this is one of the nicest additions to my CO2 collection. Get one while you can. Oh, and true to the original, this little pellet pistol does not have any unauthentic safety "device" added.
ProsRight on authentic copy.
In black looks very good
Nice grips, they even feel like the original wooden ones
Nice being able to load pellets without taking "cartridges" out of the cylinder
ConsReally none I can think of, this is an air pistol.
Only thing missing on this is the odd long firing pin on the originals- no big deal.

Gletcher NGT Pellet Revolver - good stuff!
I am well pleased with the revolver, this one being the rifled barrel model for use with pellets. Loading and unloading the brass shells is easy. This revolver is a good copy of the real Nagant revolver, comparing it alongside my Russian gun. The only thing missing is the true gas-sealing action with the cylinder moving forward as it is cocked, though it appears to have a slight movement. The Nagant's odd "twist & push" ejector rod works similar to the real thing, though has not been needed to unload, as the polished brass cases slide right out. Overall weight and feel are very close. It perfectly fits the Nagant holster. Trigger pull is better than the real Nagant, though not too easy. Accuracy is promising. I haven't shot it much yet, about four cylinders full. First group was large, but tightened considerably as I got used to it. Using RWS Diabolo Basic .177 pellets, the final two groups had five shots cloverleafed and two slight fliers each, at about 12 feet shooting distance.
I heartily recommend this air pistol to those who want a very good copy of a historically interesting pistol that shoots well.
ProsVery close to the original. Good accuracy using good pellets.
ConsThe markings, basically. Detracts from the realism. If it weren't for this, I could hand this pistol to my buddy (who owns a real Nagant) and he wouldn't know the difference.
