Nagant M1895 Revolver was a seven-shot, gas-seal revolver designed and produced by Belgian industrialist Léon Nagant for the Russian Empire.

The Nagant M1895 was chambered for a proprietary cartridge, 7.62×38mmR,  and featured an unusual "gas-seal" system, in which the cylinder moved  forward when the gun was cocked, to close the gap between the cylinder  and the barrel, providing a boost to the muzzle velocity of the fired projectile and allowing the weapon to be suppressed (an unusual ability for a revolver)

The Nagant has had an extensive history around the world from the Boxer Rebellion in China to Vietnam War
