Pieper Revolving Carbine - 8x50mmR Pieper

The Pieper Revolving Carbine is a revolver rifle developed around 1890 in Belgium by the Bayard company, also known by the name Anciens Etablissesments Pieper. It has a 9-round cylinder chambering the 8x50mmR Pieper cartridge. It also used the same gas seal system as the Nagant M1895, where the cylinder would move forward while firing, forming a gas-tight seal. This allows the rifle to be suppressed, like the Nagant M1895, however, no evidence of a suppressed Pieper exists; it was most likely done so that gas from the front of the cylinder wouldn't damage the shooter's arm. It was only purchased in significant numbers by the Mexican Rurales law enforcement group, who preferred the revolving rifle compared to lever-action designs because it was easier to use on horseback. Due to its proprietary ammunition, the 8x50mmR Pieper (essentially a longer 7.62x38mmR), the weapon was swapped out fairly quickly for a weapon that used something more common. The Pieper carbine is now very rare due to its proprietary ammunition limiting sales figures, along with its low production numbers of under 5,000.
