Russian M1869 Krnka Rifle - 15,24x40mmR

Krnka M1869 (also called M1867 after the year of design) is a Russian battle rifle. It is a conversion of muzzle-loading 6-line (15.2mm) M1857 rifle musket into breech loading rifle, created by Austrian (Czech) gun designer Sylvester Krnka and produced by Tulsky Oruzheiny Zavod. Krnka rifle was created in 1867 and adopted by Russian Army in 1869. There were two slightly different versions, converted from Infantry and Strelkovaya (Sharpshooter) versions of M1857. Krnka rifles were widely used in Russo-Turkish War of 1877–78, and even after it was mostly replaced by more advanced Berdan Rifle, Russian troops in Central Asia still used Krnka until late 1880s while Bulgarian auxillary troops had these rifles as late as 1915.

Trivia: Krnka rifle was known among Russian soldiers under the nickname "Krynka" ("clay jug") due to similar sounding and the difficulty of pronouncing Czech name that lacks vowels.
