I want a Nagant for my Finn impression but need to get one that's good.I've seen videos of some that didn't seem promising.Ranging from bad construction to broken when delivered.I had my eye on the one that came with the bayonet but the reviewer said it was a junk gun.I want one that is affordable but not going to be cheaply made.If one could direct me to one.

If you're going Finn, you're going to want a Tikka built or SA marked, M91/30. Airsoft versions almost universally suck the sweat from a dead fascisti's scrotum. So, if you want accurate AND quality, the only way for you to go is to build your own. I've done so, and the beauty of an M91/30 build is that the real-steel rifles are so cheap, you can probably afford to buy one and dismantle it for parts. This is NOT recommended, as many people view these rifles as living bits of history, but the parts are also cheap enough to buy most of the cosmetic bits.
For my build (Tula 1937 M91/30 PU retrofit), I used a stock set that I picked up for $20 at a gun show, a barrel from an M14 reversed (thread side hidden by the handguard), and milled a dovetail to mount a real-steel front sight ($5, buymilsurp.com back then). Reshaped the new barrel end with fine sandpaper (to allow for proper dimensions, so my bayonet would fit), and recrowned with a dremel. Used the bits of an L96 springer as the guts, and once it was all together and working, concentrated on upgrading the guts of the L96 with such bits as a 230% spring, tightbore, aluminum double seal piston assembly, and zero trigger. I haven't had the courage to cosmetically modify the bolt, as I don't want to weaken it, because that spring is a bear to compress as it stands, and modding may cause the bolt handle to fail rather badly. Still, for under $50 (not counting the tools, which I had, or the upgrades, which are entirely optional to you), you can build a very convincing replica that will double as a supreme war club, boat oar, and firewood.
With the upgrades? Heck, sky's the limit. I've got about $700 all told into mine, but I can hit a head at 30m every shot, and a torso at nearly 100m, 80% of the time (some "Kentucky Windage" required). 600-650FPS at the muzzle with .30g Madbulls, I'm not allowed to engage at less than 20m by field rules.

You have good skills to do that stuff,I don't :DIt seems good Nagants in the market are very thin.I really don't like the loading mechanism on them which is slow.It hardly matters anyway because if there wasn't a good Nagant available then I would choose the PPSH 41.Thanks for the suggestion though mentosfreshmaker!Someday I might make my own gun but that's time and money I will better use latter.
Dracul: It looks like it lost a lot of steam and I now feel bad for randomly dropping off.

stuka: I mean it's not your fault. It is interesting though that things are falling off as we are finally getting our ww2 guns with the type 38/96 and the enfield as well as it recieving a new loading system, it's kind of unfortunate

Dracul: I don't know, maybe its because all the guns are becoming available, there is a decreasing need for the forums.

Dracul: Most of the talk was about making guns, as all the uniform info was already out there, but now the weapons are out there and are usually decent quality.

stuka: well the forum is and should still be useful for updates on guns, creating groups/events and building kits

Cpl. Hicks: I haven't been here in years, but I'm glad to see this forum is still kicking! So much great info on here.

savoy6: anyone know if anyone still carries the enfield?

Dracul: I think Redwolf has a Enfield. If not or not longer, then not until G&G releases theirs. The old gas Iron Airsoft brand SMLE isn't carried by anyone anymore and was such piece of crap. Not worth trying to track one down.
