Military Rifles

The United States Military is known for its use of military rifles. From the birth of the United States to modern times, the use of gunpowder and military rifles have helped declare our freedom and independence through strategic maneuvers, and the use of offensive combat techniques. Some of these military rifles include the Browning Automatic Rifle, the Henry Repeating Rifle, the M1941 Rifle, the M1 Garand, the M 14, the M 16, the M 1819 Hall Rifle, the M 21, the M 24 SWS, the M3 MAAWS, the M4 Carbine, and the M40 Rifle.

The Browning Automatic Rifle was created in 1917 and was in production until 1940. The Browning Military Rifles were used during World Wars I and II, the Korean War, and the Vietnam War. Some variants of the Browning Automatic Rifle include the
M1918A1, M1918A2.

Military rifles have evolved throughout the years. Today’s military weapons are vast and consist of many more items. Military weapons include bayonets, bayonet knives, sidearms, shotguns, submachine guns, compact carbine, rifles, marksman rifles, automatic weapons and rifles, anti tank and assault weapons, grenades, and lasers.

Weapons are a vital important part of the United State’s ability to successfully carry out military strategies and tactics and military rifles still play an important role in combat. During military training, soldiers are taught that their rifles or weapons are just as important as their buddies. They become masters at using, taking apart and cleaning, and putting their military rifles back together. When soldiers are training with their military rifles, they must use the utmost care and pay attention to all of the safety rules to prevent accidents from occurring. It is sad and tragic but there have been deadly accidents that have taken place on the training fields of the United States Armed Forces.
