Nagant Törnell 87/93

There is a model improved of the revolver Nagant 1887, known under the name of m/87-93.

It comprised additional notches of blocking on the cylinder, intended to guarantee blocking. This provision was patented by Lt Tor Fabian Törnell of the Swedish army in 1888.

Although this improvement was approved by the Swedish government in 1893, it was never adopted; consequently, these improved models are extremely rare.

The visible difference is a tail of trigger in two parts, whose back part releases the cylinder when one put on the trigger.

This revolver was manufactured in Belgium by Nagant, for the tests of the army.

The weapon preserves its finished original, neither modified nor restored.

Pretty blue with the flame on the hammer, the trigger and the spring of door.

I saw of them only two until now.
