The Battlefield Classic: Russian Winchester 1895 Rifle in 7.62x54R

The Classic Russian Winchester 1895 Rifle is just plain old school cool.

This old battle rifle was a great lever action battlefield rifle of its day.

Watch this video and see Ian of Forgotten Weapons tell us all about the Russian Winchester 1895 Rifle.

While awaiting for an order of much needed Mosin-Nagant Rifles during World War One Russia bought 300,000 Winchester 1895 rifles. These rifles were chambered for the 7.62x54r cartridge.

The Mosin-Nagant bolt action rifle was better in muddy battle field conditions though in the long run.

The Russian Winchester 1895 Rifle was an interesting step in small arms though lever action rifles fell away to other designs.
