Pearland Rifles For Sale

Single Shot Shotgun

If you are looking for a rifle, Orcus Firearms has a great selection for you to choose from. If you do not have much experience with rifles, it is important that you first understand what a rifle is, how it works, and the different types of rifles before going through our Pearland rifles for sale.

How A Rifle Works

  1. Barrel: This is the tube that makes up most of the length of the rifle. It is open on one end. Inside the barrel are grooves (called rifling) that have been cut into a spiral/helical pattern. The raised parts of the rifling (called ‘lands’) spin the bullet for stability once it is fired.
  2. Muzzle: This is the open end of the barrel, and it is where the bullet comes out.
  3. Breach/action: The breach or action contains all the parts that are necessary in loading, reloading, and shooting the rifle. This can be opened and closed via a bolt housed in the action, allowing you to load new cartridges. Note muzzleloaders do not have actions but have locks instead.
  4. Stock: This is where you hold the rifle. It also supports the barrel and the action.
  5. Cartridge: Cartridges contain the bullets. The method of loading the cartridge is what differentiates the different types of rifles.

Our Different Types of Rifles for Sale in Pearland TX

Bolt-action rifles

We have bolt-action Pearland rifles for sale that have been popular with hunters since the late 20th century because of their ability to repeatedly fire high-pressure cartridges. Bolt-action firearms are some of the most accurate rifles today. These rifles typically hold 5 or so rounds, and they can be configured as repeaters or single shots. Their safe, easy, and straightforward operation also makes them popular for general-purpose hunting.

Lever-action rifles

The lever-action rifle has been used since the mid-19th century. The lever-action technology employed by the rifle changed the rifle industry. These guns were used in law enforcement, hunting, personal defense, and combat. Although their popularity diminished with bolt-action rifles, we still stock these rifles for sale in Pearland TX because they are still popular with hunters who shoot deer in dense cover due to their easy maneuverability and light weight.

These rifles are repeaters that hold between 5 and 15 cartridges. Most lever-action rifles use tubular magazine located under the barrel. Most of our modern lever-action rifles have removable box magazine.

Pump-action rifles

These rifles are not very common, but they are still popular with deer hunters. These guns, also called side-action rifles, work like pump-action shotguns but mostly with a box magazine.

Falling block rifles

These rifles use a break block, which is a squared-off piece of metal to close the breach end of the barrel, as opposed to a bolt in bolt-action rifles. The breach block is operated via a lever that is located under the trigger, and it goes up and down within the action. The breach is open with the lever in the down position, allowing the shooter to manually load a cartridge. Spent casings are ejected each time you push the block to the down position in most of these rifles. These are single-shot rifles, meaning you need to load a cartridge before the next shot.

Semi-automatic rifles

These rifles fire a single round with each pull of the trigger, but the next round is loaded using the energy from the firing. Semi-automatic rifles are also called auto-loading rifles or self-loading rifles (SLR). These guns are broadly categorized as blowback semi-automatic rifles (non-gas-operated) and gas-operated rifles.
