The Pieper revolving carbine is a Belgian carbine.

HistoryEdit

The weapon was developed in the late 1890s by Pieper in Belgium. It is only known to be used by the Mexican Rural Police. Very few were made and it is very highly valued by collectors because of that.

Design DetailsEdit

The Pieper uses the same gas seal system as the Nagant M1895 revolver. It holds nine rounds in a swing-out cylinder.

AmmunitionEdit
