Rifle Scope 's are used for hunting to increase the view of an object.
Originally, rifles were sharpshooter weapons, while the regular infantry made use of the greater firepower of massed muskets, which fired round balls of calibers up to 0.75 inch (19 mm).
Until the early 20thcentury rifles tended to be very long-a Martini-Henry of 1890 was almost six feet (1.8 m) in length, with a fixed bayonet.

  Rifle - LoveToKnow 1911
Gas-operated rifles, like the Hotchkiss and Colt machine guns, have fixed barrels and are worked by a portion of the powder-gases which is allowed to escape from the barrel through a small hole near the muzzle, thence entering a cylinder and working a piston in connexion with the breech mechanism.
In both rifles, on the left side of the stock, is a long-distance sight (graduated to 2800 yds.), which consists of an aperture sight near the bolt and a dial and movable pointer near the hand-guard.
Rifles of r2-bore gauge, firing a spherical ball, were subsequently made, with broad and shallow grooves making one turn in ro ft. The bullet, of the same diameter as the bore, was loaded with a thin patch that took the grooving.

When introduced, rifles were more accurate than their smoothbore cousins on account of the spin the rifling imparted on the projectile; however, it took almost two centuries for the smoothbore firearm to be completely supplanted, as rifles were more expensive and harder to make, had a lower rate of fire, and required more maintenance.
Nonetheless, by the time of the American War of Independence rifles were common, and the greater accuracy of the rifle, coupled with new and improved powder charges, led to a new school of arms; sniping, a sport which the scurrilous Americans used to great and cowardly effect against Britain's mighty redcoats.
By the end of WW2 the long rifle was effectively obsolete in front-line service, and was relegated to a training role; the last Western army to retain the rifle as the mainstay of the regular forces was that of Italy, who used a derivative of the M1 Garand until the early 80s.

Which left the pistol and the rifle, both key weapons on the battlefield, although the former was used less as an offensive weapon than the rifle, and were generally issued to officers rather than regular soldiery.
The single-shot, bigger-bore rifle was the subject of extensive research and development in the latter portion of the nineteenth century, with the result that the major powers introduced new models that were small-bore, bolt-action weapons capable of firing multiple rounds from a spring-loaded clip inserted into a rifle magazine.
The infantry aside, the rifle was a crucial element of the sniper's armoury: along with a human observer, that is.

The Air Rifle competition is shot at 10m from the standing unsupported position and consists of 60 shots in 1 hr 45 mins for men, possible score - 600, and 40 shots in 1 hr 15 min for women, possible score - 400.
Firstly, the modern match air rifle will put all of the pellets fired from it through the same hole at 10m and secondly, most of the top shooters in the world manage to shoot the possible score or very near to it, regularly.
Those shooters lucky (and good) enough to be selected for International representation usually test their rifles with a variety of ammunitions overseas at the various test facilities and try to buy up quantities of ammunition that performs well in their particular rifle.

 Collecting and Shooting the Arisaka Type 99 Rifle   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Both the Long and Short Rifles were fitted with a sliding bolt cover (which traveled in narrow grooves cut in either side of the receiver as the bolt was worked) and a folding wire monopod pinned into a T-shaped block on the lower band.
The later (1943-45) rifles are often identified as having a fixed notch rear sight instead of the customary folding/sliding leaf sight, no provision for attaching a sliding bolt cover or monopod or mounting an under barrel cleaning rod and the lack of a chrome-plated bore.
The Japanese ideographs on the rifle receiver ring below the chrysanthemum in the photo translate as "99 Type." Many of chrysanthemum markings were ground off the rifles by surrendering Japanese troops because it was considered a disgrace to hand over a rifle was considered the property of the Emperor.
