I was made by RWS on October 23, 1940.



I think this was probably made for the Swedish Ordnance Revolver, not the Swiss. The word “suédois” in French means “Swedish.” The 7.5 Nagant was used by Sweden from about 1887 until c. 1907, designated “Mod. 1887.”

For 7.5 Swedish Nagant, model 1887 revolver. The only place manufacturing new ammo for it today (in the U.S.) that I know of is Reed’s Ammunition in Oklahoma. I assume their brass is reformed or trimmed from another caliber, probably 32-20.
