Berdan Dragoon Rifle

The Berdan rifle (Vintovka Berdana in Russian) is a Russian rifle created by famous American firearms expert and inventor Hiram Berdan in 1868. Standard issue in the Russian army from 1869-1891, the Berdan was replaced by the Mosin- Nagant rifle. Widely used in Russia as a hunting weapon, sporting variants, including shotguns, were produced until the mid-1930s.

Note that this article discusses the Russian Berdan I (M1868) and Berdan II (M1870) rifles of .42 caliber. The Russian models are distinct from the Spanish Berdan 15mm (.58+ cal) conversion rifles adopted by Spain as the M1857/67 Berdan (and related engineer, artillery & short rifles).

The Russian Berdan II Dragoon rifle was issued to mounted infantry, that is, infantry which was "horse-mobile" but who's tactics were not to fight from horseback. This rifle is is very similar to the Infantry rifle, being only slightly shorter and identifiable by the sling slots through the wood of the forearm and butt, rather than the more conventional swivels of the infantry rifle.
