The Belgium brothers, Emil & Leon Nagant, cooperated with the Russian S.I Mosin to design and produce the Mosin-Nagant Model 1891 rifle, and they went on to design this revolver which was adopted by the Imperial Russian Army in 1895.
( easy to confuse the association)

The silencer issue Calvin speaks of is due to the cartrige design and the cylinder design that "pressed the cylinder home" to create a tight gas seal, then withdrew it slightly to rotat for the next round.

There were 2 versions SA for soldiers & Non-Coms; DA for officers.

Enjoy your Nagant 1895 Dennis.
