List Rules Only manufacturers of firearms that are designed to be fired from the shoulder

List of rifle brands that include the most reliable models available. The best rifle brands include those from major manufacturers including Walther, Browning Arms Company, Smith & Wesson and more.

A rifle is a firearm designed to be fired from the shoulder, with a barrel that has a helical groove or pattern of grooves ("rifling") cut into the barrel walls. The raised areas of the rifling are called "lands," which make contact with the projectile (for small arms usage, called a bullet), imparting spin around an axis corresponding to the orientation of the weapon. The word "rifle" originally referred to the grooving, and a rifle was called a "rifled gun." Rifles are used in warfare, hunting and shooting sports.

What are the best rifle brands? Users looking for a new rifle will want to research a variety of different brands to find the one that best suits their needs, based on features, design and quality. If you are in the market for a rifle, you should pay attention to the rifling, barrel wear, rate of fire, range, bullet rotational speed (RPM) and caliber.
