- Hunting Rifles-Long arms used for hunting, most are bolt action or lever action, although a few may be pullback action resulting in a faster reload time, but often a less powerful shot.

Some companies making hunting rifles: Mauser, Winchester, Remington, Browning, and Steyr Mannlicher.

They can fire buck and bird shot, which spreads to hit a wider target, or can shoot slugs which are large solid projectiles. They can be fed from by hand in a single or double barrel, a pump action, or a semi-automatic self loading mechanism.

The list of manufacturers is incomplete, and there were many luxury hunting rifles and shotguns available throughout Europe and America.
