The Pieper Revolving Carbine is a Belgian rifle which utilizes the gas seal system from the Nagant M1895 revolver.[1] It saw use by the Mexican Rurales police force near the end of the 19th century. (A Nagant-produced revolver carbine was also used by Russia's own Border Guard.[2]) The gun's wooden barrel shroud provides a sleeker profile than the earlier Colt M1855 Revolving Rifle.


Battlefield 1[]

This item has a Codex entry: Pieper M1893
"A Belgian-made double-action revolving carbine firing special gas seal cartridges."

— In-game description.

The Pieper M1893 is a weapon featured in Battlefield 1. It was first revealed as an icon for a revolver carbine that was seen in the Battlefield 1 Gameplay Series: Vehicles Trailer. It can be equipped by the Tanker and Pilot kits as a primary weapon.

Like the standard revolvers, the Pieper offers higher damage per shot, good muzzle velocity, and better aimed accuracy, but slower reload than the pistol carbines, and also a slower rate of fire amongst the pistol carbines. It has predictable recoil, but its sight picture can greatly obscure the target while firing. Though not fitted with a magnifying optic, its bullets have a longer "lifetime", making shots over 1 kilometer possible, even if kills are unlikely.


Trivia[]

  • The Pieper is the only Tanker/Pilot Carbine that does not have a different variant usable by normal classes, as a handgun version of the weapon did not exist. It is, however, a relative of the Nagant Revolver, and also has very similar gameplay performance to it.
