||7,5 mm Swedish Nagant
In 1887 a new revolver in 7,5 mm, system Nagant, was accepted for officers of the armed forces. The locking mechanism was a variation of the Galand construction from 1870 which raise the hammer to a safe position from the cartridge. These revolvers were produced by Nagant in Liége and by Husqvarna.
1893 a modification was accepted which prevented the drum from moving, when the revolver was not cocked
This revolver was used until 1945 by the home guard units. The revolver was also used by special units for dog training with blank shots as late as 1989.
In the 1950s some revolvers were converted by Svenska Metallverken to fire the .32 ACP.
This model was used by the Swedish National Shooting Organization.
Some revolvers were renewed in the 1950s and were then used by a military organization called Verkskyddet. These para-military units were put up by the State Railways, the Royal Telegraph, the Department of Transportation (responsible for bridges and ferries), all power plants and power distribution companies, as well as some strategically important industries. Most of these revolvers were sold on the civilian market in the early 1980s.
