Berdan Cossack 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 Berdan Cossack Rifle is another variant pictured below. The Cossack model is readily distinguished by it's button-like trigger and was employed by cavalry units, whose tactics were primarily fighting from its horses. A carbine variant was also built and issued for gendarmerie and light cavalry units but I don't have information on the carbine.
