by | Aug 16, 2016 | Guns

Since there are many rifles to choose from, each suitable for a particular role, it can be hard to own just one rifle. From plinking to hunting to home defense, there is a rifle for almost everything that someone might want to use a gun for. Locally, a good selection of Rifles for sale is available, so anyone should be able to find the perfect long gun. Here is an overview of some of the most popular models.

Rimfire Rifles

Almost every gun owner has had a .22 LR rifle at some point. From hunting small game to plinking at the range, .22 rifles are useful guns to have. Two of the top selling models are the Marlin 60 and the Ruger 10/22, which have been in continuous production for many years and continued to fly off the shelves.

To get even greater precision, bolt-action .22 rifles should not be overlooked, such as the CZ 455 series. Rimfire rifles chambered in .22 WMR, and .17 HMR are similarly notable for small game hunting. And for those who want a .22 rifle that has a tactical look, the Smith & Wesson M&P15-22 is a good choice.

Centerfire Rifles

A lot of hunters choose a centerfire rifle to hunt deer and other game with every year. Some of the most popular calibers include .243, .308, and .30-06. Savage’s Axis series, Ruger’s American models, the Remington 700 series, and many other bolt-action rifles are relied upon by hunters to help them have a successful hunt. Marlin’s 336 lever-action rifle, chambered in .30-30, is another great option.

One segment of the centerfire rifle market has seen significant growth over the past few decades. More than ever, people are turning to semi-automatic rifles as the ideal choice for a home defense firearm. A long list of gun manufacturers, including Smith & Wesson and Colt, now offer reliable AR-15 rifles for people who want to be able to defend themselves and their homes. Several companies also make AK-47 rifles. Semi-automatic .308 rifles, such as the Springfield M1A, can be used for defense as well.
