Here are the very detailed Fedorov avtomat photos from the Kalashnikov Concern itself:

(And the video is there too ;))

 

I don't know what to say about the Fedorov Automat exactly. There is so much allready written about it.

Lets start with that it was a 1045 mm length full-auto year 1916 rifle that used 6.5x50 Arisaka rifle round stuffed into either 15 or 25 round mags and weighted 5,2 kg with a mag fully loaded.

 

History:

Before the WWI several rifle designers (Degtyaryov and Tokarev including) were working on a self-loading (semi-auto) and automatic (full-auto) rifle designs.

 

In the year 1911 Fedorov tested a five-round self-loaded rifle of his own design for the standard issue 7.62x54 mm rimmed Russian round.

 

Fedorov also conducted works on a 6,5 round of his own design. At the year 1913 he started testing of his Automatic rifle for this round.

However, due to the beginning of the War all works on the new hardware were ceased.

 

There were no means for new ammunition manufacturing and Fedorov adopted his rifle design for even weaker Arisaka rifle 6,5x5,0 mm round.

The Arisaka round.

 

Arisaka round muzzle energy was 1960 Jouhls while shooting the Fedorov avtomat (and its speed was 660 meters per second).

 

During the WWI only the experimental party of the rifles was produced. One company of the 189 Ismailov infantry regiment was armed with Fedorov automatic and machinegun rifles

The major production was developed only in Soviet years. From the year 1920 to the year 1924 only 3200 out of the 15 000 of initial state order of Fedorov automatic rifles were produced.

 

The Fedorov avtomat stood at the army supply till the year 1928 officially. 

 

But, due to the lack of automatic weapon Fedorov automat was supplied to the troops fighting the Winter War in Karelia.

And the Fedorov avtomatic rifle year 1930 manual in .djvu

 

Accordingly to the manual:

Its technical shooting speed was "over 600 rpm".

Effective shooting speed was 25 rpm for single shoolts and 75-100 rpm for full auto.

 

Here it is in Tula museum exibition:

An excellent Tier 1 light machine gun, or assault rifle.

it would fit tier 1 mg perfectly.... would be a much more controllable BAR with much better ergonomics but maybe a tad bit less dmg, and much less sway

It seems a little heavy, old and uncommon to see this on the battlefield next to some Sturmgewehr or m1 of the very ending of the ww2.

even if it's interesting.

 

what soviets need its in the first place would be a weapon for para. 

Dont you think ?

Maybe a second LMG honestly (DT-29 is the perfect candidate, why does everyone overlook it?:(). What would the soviets even get for their paras?
