The Fedorov Avtomat (Avtomát Fyódorova, or 'Fedorov's Automatic Rifle') is a select-fire, crew-served automatic rifle designed by Vladimir Grigoryevich Fyodorov in 1915. It was first produced in sizable quantities in 1916 for the Russian Empire during World War 1, and later for the Russian Soviet Federative Socialist Republic following the Russian Revolution. The Fedorov Avtomat (more commonly just referred to as a 'Fedorov') holds the distinction of being one of the world's first operational automatic rifles, with some considering it to be an early predecessor of the modern assault rifle.
After the conclusion of the Russo-Japanese War in late 1905, then-Captain Vladimir Fedorov began working on a prototype for a semi-automatic rifle, working with future small arms designer Vasily Degtyaryov as his assistant. A model would be submitted to the Rifle Commission of the Russian army in 1911, which eventually ordered 150 more rifles for testing. In 1913, Fedorov submitted a working prototype to the Commission. This prototype featured a fixed magazine loaded with stripper clips, and was chambered for an experimental rimless 6.5mm cartridge of Fedorov's own design. This new rimless ammunition was more compact than the rimmed Russian 7.62×54mmR and produced less recoil, which made it more suitable for use in automatic weapons. However, during testing the round was found to be prone to occasional jamming.
In the autumn of 1915, Fedorov was posted as a military observer to France. While in France, he was impressed by the French Chauchat machine gun and by the firepower it brought, but was less impressed with the weapon's lack of mobility. According to Fedorov's memoirs, it is here he came up with the idea of introducing into Russian service a weapon with firepower between that of the rifle and the light machine gun, with mobility comparable to a rifle. His decision to adapt his semi-automatic rifle design for this purpose was one of wartime expediency, as World War 1 was already in full swing by 1915. Fedorov set to the task upon his return to Russia in January 1916. He retained the core mechanism of his semi-automatic rifle, with the major addition of a selective fire switch to allow for fully automatic fire. The fixed magazine was replaced by a curved 25-round detachable box magazine, and the caliber was changed. Large-scale production of Fedorov's experimental new cartridge was out of question due to budget constraints, so it was decided to convert the rifle to fire the 6.5mm Arisaka cartridge, which Russia had in abundance at the time due to purchasing Arisaka rifles and ammo from Great Britain. The change of ammunition involved only minimal changes to the rifle, including a chamber insert and a new range scale for the rear sights. It would be this new modified rifle that Fedorov would present to the Rifle Commission for approval in early 1916.
The Fedorov rifle is a short-recoil operated, locked-breech weapon which fires from a closed bolt. The locking of the action is achieved by a pair of symmetrical plates mounted to either side of the breech and held in place by a sheet metal cover. Each of these plates has two lugs, one square and one round, mounted at either side of the breech. These lugs latch the barrel and bolt together through recesses on the bolt. Those plates are allowed to tilt slightly down after about 10 mm of free recoil, unlocking the bolt. A bolt hold-open device is fitted, allowing a soldier to reload a magazine with stripper clips if needed.
In 1916, the Weapons Committee of the Russian Army decided to order no less than 25,000 Fedorov automatic rifles. That summer, a company from the 189th Izmail Regiment was equipped with eight Fedorov Avtomats. After completing their training, the company was deployed to the Romanian front in early 1917. It was supposed to report back valuable combat experience about the new weapon, but this did not happen because the company disintegrated during the Kerensky Offensive. About 10 other Fedorov rifles were given to the Russian naval aviation forces. In early 1917, the order for Fedorov rifles was limited to 5,000 units. However, only about 100 Fedorov Avtomats had been produced before the collapse of the Russian Empire in 1917, when production was halted. Several years later in 1920, the Fedorov would get another chance to prove itself, when they were used to equip Red Army units in the Karelian sector during the Karelian Uprising. Reports concerning the gun's combat performance during 1921–1922 were very positive (as long as spare parts were available).
Despite some noted reliability and performance issues, the Fedorov Avtomat was deemed acceptable for Red Army use in a 1924 review. However, due to supply problems, Soviet leaders decided to abandon all weapons using foreign ammunition. As a consequence, production of the Fedorov Avtomat was halted in October 1925. Only 3,200 Fedorovs were manufactured between 1915 and 1925. After 1925, the rifle was withdrawn from service and put in storage. The Fedorov would see combat for the last time during the Winter War of 1939, when an acute lack of individual automatic weapons led to the Red Army reintroducing the stockpiled Fedorovs back into service. They were sent to the Karelian front, mostly to military intelligence units. It is presumed that most of these Fedorov Avtomats were expended or destroyed during that war, although the Finnish military did capture a number of Fedorov rifles from Soviet forces.
