The rifle has been a staple of American life since the early 1700s. It was different from the other frequently used firearm, the musket, in that the rifle contained grooves on the barrel, whereas the musket’s barrel was smooth. Those grooves gave the bullet some stability and led to better accuracy. It was initially used for hunting as opposed to military use, due to its being difficult to load and generally maintain.
Right before the civil war, these two types of weapons began to be forged together to create the rifle-musket. Soon this longer name became shortened to just “rifle,” and thereafter the musket was essentially gone from the gun maker’s vocabulary.
Once the rifle became part of the soldier’s arsenal, the world never looked back. Rifles are both loved and feared due to their accuracy and user-friendly features.
