All rifles have three major parts. These three parts are: Stock, Action, Barrel.

  • The stock is the part of the gun that you hold. It helps you hold, aim, and fire the gun.
  • The action is the part of the gun that loads, fires, and unloads the cartridges.
  • The barrel is the part of the gun that sends the bullet to the target.
