The Roth-Krnka, also known as the Roth-Steyr M1907, is a semi-automatic pistol issued to the Austro-Hungarian Kaiserliche und Koenigliche Armee cavalry during World War I. It is a locked-breech pistol which allows the barrel and bolt to recoil together within a hollow receiver. It is chambered for a cartridge specific to this model. The Roth–Steyr does not have a detachable magazine, but features a fixed magazine loaded from the top with stripper clips. The sights are fixed, the grips are wooden and terminate in a lanyard ring. Rifling is four grooves with right-hand twist. It was the first adoption of semi-automatic service pistol by the land army of a major power. Approximately 99,000 weapons were produced between 1908 and 1914. Following the dissolution of Austria-Hungary, the pistol was fielded by Yugoslavia, with limited use during World War II by the Austrians and Hungarians. Italy received a number of pistols as World War I reparations from Austria-Hungary, and these pistols were used by Italian troops during World War II.
The Roth-Krnka is a weapon set to be featured in Battlefield 1.
