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-action rifles. The Trench variant deals its highest damage at very close range, while the Infantry and Marksman variants sit between the mid-range SMLE MKIII and long-range Gewehr 98. The weapon is limited by its small integral five round magazine.
Russian 1895 InfantryEdit
The Russian 1895 Infantry variant is equipped only with a bayonet. It also serves as the default weapon for the Cavalry class, but this version has no bayonet.
Russian 1895 MarksmanEdit
The Marksman variant is equipped with a scope, a bipod and a bayonet.
Russian 1895 TrenchEdit
The Trench variant (formerly known as the Rifleman variant) is chambered for .30-40 Krag, drastically changing its damage profile. It is capable of inflicting one-hit kill headshots at close range, but does not have a "sweet spot" where a single body shot results in a kill.
