SIG SAUER Modern Sporting Rifle

Photo by SIG SAUER

Modern Sporting Rifles are gas-driven semi-automatic rifles. That same rearward movement resets, or cocks, the trigger and ejects the spent cartridge out the side ejection port. As the bolt carrier moves forward, the bolt strips a round out of a magazine and seats the ammunition into the chamber, ready to fire again. The Modern Sporting Rifles are one of the most popular rifle platforms being purchased today.

As with all firearms, owners and users must practice excellent safety habits including handling, storing, and discussing their firearms.
