The Berthier Rifles and Carbines were a family of bolt-action small arms in 8 x 50R mm Lebel, used in the French Army from the 1890's to the beginning of World War II and by some French law enforcement units until the 1970's. Developed from the cavalry and artillery carbines issued in 1890-92, known as the "mousquetons Berthier", two full length Berthier rifle models had already been introduced before World War I. They were the fusil Mle 1902 and fusil Mle 1907 which were issued to Indochinese and Senegalese Tirailleur troops. During World War I, a modified version of the Mle 1907 rifle called Fusil Mle 1907-15 was manufactured in very large numbers for issue to French Colonial troops, French Foreign Legion and Allied troops during the war. It also was issued to regular French troops due to the shortage of Lebel Model 1886 rifle during World War I. The Fusil Mle 1907-15 was manufactured in at four locations the French arsenals Manufacture d'armes de Saint-Étienne and Chatellerault. Also by private companies Delaunay-Belleville, Continsouza and Remington UMC. Due to the small 3 rd magazine capacity of the Berthier Mle 1907-15 to be a major disadvantage, that led to the introduction of a 5-round magazine Berthier Fusil Mle 1907-15 M16. It was manufactured beginning in 1890 until 1918. The total number of Berthier rifles manufactured was 435,000 units. In 1930s about 80,000 of them were converted for using a new 7.5 mm cartridge; this version is known as Mle 1907-15 M34.
