Light-weight Sporting Rifles

Sporting rifles are .22 cal. rifles that have taken the place of pistols since the pistols were banned in 1997. A current favourite is the Ruger 10/22 self-loading rifle. Rifles in .22LR calibre are the only SLR's that can be owned in the UK.

The other type of rifle is a bolt-action type
