The Nagant M1895 Revolver is a seven-shot, gas-seal revolver designed and produced by Belgian industrialist Léon Nagant for the Russian Empire. It 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.
The Nagant Revolver is a weapon that will be introduced in Battlefield 1: In the Name of the Tsar expansion for all infantry classes.
It is a gate-loading revolver (like many of the class-specific revolvers) that requires cartridges to be individually ejected and loaded. However, it also has a detachable cylinder allowing for a quicker full reload.
