The Pieper Revolving Carbine is a Belgian rifle which utilizes the gas seal system from the Nagant M1895 revolver. It saw use by the Mexican Rurales police force near the end of the 19th century. (A Nagant-produced revolver carbine was also used by Russia's own Border Guard.) The gun's wooden barrel shroud provides a sleeker profile than the earlier Colt M1855 Revolving Rifle.
The Pieper M1893 is a weapon featured in Battlefield 1. It was first revealed as an icon for a revolver carbine that was seen in the Battlefield 1 Gameplay Series: Vehicles Trailer. It can be equipped by the Tanker and Pilot kits as a primary weapon.
Like the standard revolvers, the Pieper offers higher damage per shot, good muzzle velocity, and better aimed accuracy, but slower reload than the pistol carbines. It has predictable recoil, but its sight picture can greatly obscure the target while firing. Though not fitted with a magnifying optic, its bullets have a longer "lifetime", making shots over 1 kilometer possible, even if kills are unlikely.
