The Model 1870 Berdan, commonly known as the "Berdan II", is a single shot, bolt action rifle chambered in the 10.75mmx58R cartridge. These rifles were manufactured in large numbers by the Tula, Izhevsk, and Sestroretsk arms factories. These rifles were used by the Russian military as well as guard units and other miscellaneous groups within the military. This particular batch of rifles was sent by Russia for military aid sometime between the late 1880's to the early 1890's before the First Italo-Ethiopian War, which they subsequently saw service in.

4 of 5 Better than expected January 23, 2021
Reviewer: BK from NC  
I did not opt for Hand Select. Do not see any Ethiopian markings on it. No major rust, just lots of dirt. Dated 1876. It actually came with a cleaning rod, which I wasn't expecting. I understand those are hard to come by. No major ding or cracks in the stock. No metal sling swivels, only the holes drilled into the stock for a dog collar-style sling attachment. The buttstock has some sort of shiny, metal decorations on it, seven pieces roughly the sizes of nail heads with holes punched in the middle. Bore looks good. Only issue would be that the wings on the rear sight have been been bent inwards so I can't raise or adjust the sights at all, but that should be fixable.

4 of 5 Surprisingly Good January 22, 2021
Reviewer: Chris P from TN  
I missed when RTI had these at first. I jumped on the second wave and was expecting a less than stellar rifle. I was amazed at how good my rifle is. Its dated 1879 with markings clear and readable. There is no Ethiopian markings and the bolt doesn't match. The stock has no cracks, no bad dings or gouges only two holes for a sling. The metal is all in the white and is missing sling swivels and cleaning rod. Also missing is the adjustment for the sight. The rifling is very good and in great shape. Even with the missing parts I'm very pleased with my rifle.

3 of 5 Hand select Berdan rifle September 9, 2020
Reviewer: Jacob from IA  
I received my hand select Berdan rifle yesterday. The rifle was in good shape, with only dings and dents in the stock no cracks. It had holes drilled in it for a sling. The bore was nice with strong rifling. Now the bad, it was cut down in ethiopia and had the front sight brazed back on at a 45 degree angle. And the stock has been cut and shortened as well. I believe they we're making them into cavalry carbines. Over all not bad, and the aight is fixable. I was not happy with the fact that they hand selected a cut down rifle over a full length as shown in their photos.

4 of 5 Nice surprise August 31, 2020
Reviewer: Ddily from florida  
I recieved mine and it was missing the cleaning rod but the bore and stock were in wonderful condtion. I ended up getting a dragoon model which I was very excitrd for. It also had some really cool markings on it, and had an inscription on the barrel in ethipoian said for the government.
