Steampunk Guns and the Nagant Revolver
The Victorious Mongoose operates on the extremely sophisticated scientific principals pioneered in Dr. Grordbort's full size weapons; Aether Oscillation, Atomic Vibratulation, high pitch whining noises, all these techniques were used, and more.While all steampunky and everything, it struck me that the real thing is frequently overlooked by the folks that enjoy these brass and steel creations. I have to admit that I was shocked by the price tag on this
But, despite its humble proportion, the pistol packs quite a whollop. Able to project a conical emission for up to seventeen yards, the Victorious Mongoose will obliterate four pounds of Budgerigars in three fascinating seconds.
The Nagant 1895 revolver is one such gun. Designed by Léon Nagant, a Belgian industrialist, the Nagant M1895 is a military revolver that has a gas seal between the cylinder and forcing cone. The cylinder actually moves forward to seal off the cylinder gap prior to cartridge ignition. Because the ignition gases do not escape the cylinder gap, the Nagant is one of the few revolvers that is able to be effectively suppressed, giving an assassin a handgun that will not spew brass or make much noise. Suppressed Nagant revolvers were used by the Viet Cong, and a suppressed Nagant revolver resides in the CIA Museum in Langley, Virginia.
A couple of years ago, many of these historical weapons were imported and sold as surplus in the United States. Cursed with obscure, weak and expensive ammunition, as well as a heavy trigger pull, they were not popular sellers. Still, they sold readily in like new condition with the original holsters and lanyards for under $100. If you are interested in getting a Nagant revolver of your own, the revolver is still available with the holster and tools from Aim Surplus. They have 7.62 Nagant ammunition as well.
