In production from 1896 - 1934. A total of 426,754 were produced - Of that number 293,816 were manufactured for the Russian military in the early years of World War One (1914-1918) in 7.62x54 R. The Russian model looks almost exactly like the U.S. military version with the exception of a loading bridge so stripper clips could be used to load the magazine.
