The Nagant M1895 is a Belgian-designed Russian revolver. While M1895s were used in numerous countries, most of them were produced and used in Russia. Adapted into service by Tsarist Russia in 1895 and retained by the Soviet Union, they were partially replaced in service by the Tokarev TT-33 in the 1930s, but not completely retired from frontline service until the adoption of the Makarov pistol in 1952. Afterwards, they were relegated to use by second-line troops and security troops.
