Winchester 1895. Sold to the Russians like Nagants made by Remington And New England Westinghouse at the start of WWI. Great Christmas present. You must have been a good little boy last year.

Between 1915 and 1917 approximately 300,000 M1895's were manufactured for the army of Russian Empire, accounting for about 70% of total production of the rifles prior to 1936 when the M1895 was discontinued.

Yes Robert but this one was shipped to Spain by the Russians in 1936-37 for use in the Spanish Civil War as noted by the MP8 cartouche.

They're a great rifle, you'll certainly enjoy it; I once fired 5 effective shots in 4 and a 1/2 seconds from a .303 version.
This was on a military range at a standard figure target.
