    RARE, MINT, 1880 Dated Imperial Russian Infantry Model 1870 Berdan II Single Shot Bolt Action 10.7×58mmR Calibre Rifle & Socket Bayonet. Sn 10923:11 - 10923:11

    The Berdan rifle is a Russian rifle created by famous American firearms expert and inventor Hiram Berdan in 1868. Berdam rifles were standard issue in the Russian Army from 1870 to 1891. The model of 1870, or Berdan II, is a single shot bolt action with a distinctive short, pear-shaped, bolt handle. The bolt handle serves as the only locking lug for the action, and when closed, points upwards at a 30 degree angle, rather than horizontally. The Berdan II Infantry rifles were issued with quadrangular socket bayonets. Initial production of the Berdan II was at Birmingham Small Arms in England. The rifles were later manufactured in large numbers by Russian factories at Tula, Izhevsk, and Sestroretsk. The rifle was known for its accuracy, simplicity and reliability. The 10.7×58mmR cartridge used in the Berdan rifles was also invented by Hiram Berdan, with assistance of Russian Colonel Gorloff. This is an excellent original example of the Berdan II Infantry rifle. It has excellent undamaged wood work with just the bumps and bruises to be expected with age and service use and excellent metal work with original finish. The rifle measures 53” overall and has a 33” round steel barrel. The rifled bore is clean and the weapon has a block and blade fore sight, ladder rear sight, steel butt plate and sling swivels. It has the correct pear shaped bolt. The stock is also slotted for sling. The barrel is marked with crisp Russian Script, numbered ‘ 40340’ and dated ‘1880’. The metal work has several other small inspection marks. The rifle’s cocking and firing actions work perfectly. The rifle comes with an original correct socket bayonet with 20” quadrangular blade. The blade is numbered ‘18256’ with small roundel containing what appears to be ‘II’. The price for this rare near mint, Imperial Russian Infantry rifle with bayonet includes UK delivery. As an obsolete calibre antique rifle no licence is required to own this item in the UK if retained as part of a collection or display. Sn 10923:11
