Some maybe missing the sight. To sum up these rifles are the last survivors of the imperial Russian legend.



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.

5 of 5 Really nice rifle November 5, 2021
Reviewer: Mike from GA  
This was my first purchase from RTI and I'm very pleased. It is in far better condition than what I would expect from a rifle that's over 130 years old. Only thing that I see missing is the front sling swivel and the ladder on the rear sight is loose. Otherwise, can't believe the condition of this rifle. Bore looks almost brand new. Comes with all the tactical dead spiders and sand, so get ready for an extended cleaning period. But cleaning it is part of the charm of getting a milsurp. Availability, price, condition, all amazing. Well done RTI.

4 of 5 Very Nice September 29, 2021
Reviewer: Cairan B from Texas  
The first rifle I ever bought from RTI. Was nervous to buy from them after seeing some reviews but so glad I decided to anyways. Rifle came pretty dirty but wasn't too bad a clean up. Stock has a small hole drilled through it for a string sling but that was done in Ethiopia and is part of the guns history. A little pricey but Berdans are pretty hard to come by so I understand. Glad to say I have one in my collection though and am still very pleased with the condition overall.

5 of 5 Russian II Rifle September 22, 2021
Reviewer: Chasegi from NC  
Rifle was in nice condition with a good bore and complete other than cleaning rod. Actually received a Dragoon model with a Dragoon bolt with the slot on the left side. Had rack marks and Ethiopian markings. No major defects other than normal wear...cleaned up nicely. I was a little nervous since there were only 3 left when I purchased but I'm so glad I pulled these trigger on this one.

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.
