The Winchester Model 1895 is a lever-action repeating rifle first produced in the United States before the turn of the 20th century. Between 1915 and 1917, 300,000 of these rifles (chambered in 7.62x54mmR) were manufactured for the Russian Empire, and saw service in both World War I and the subsequent Russian Civil War.
The weapon's lever action is quickly worked, offering a higher fire rate than most bolt-actions. The Rifleman variant deals its highest damage at very close range, while the Marksman variant sits between the mid-range SMLE MKIII and long-range Gewehr 98. Damage varies wildly between the two presets, with the TR unable to deal one-hit kills except through a close-range headshot. The weapon is limited by its small integral five round magazine.
