Over time, most hunters go through more than one type and model of rifle. There are two types of rifle guns: rifled and smoothbore.
Rifles are used for hunting moose, deer, roe deer, and wild boars. In these cases, you have to keep your distance, which is not easy for a beginner. Rifled guns are heavy (from 5 kg), so you will have to adapt to them. Smoothbore rifles are used to hunt small game – this is considered an average distance (10-20 m). HPGS offers a wide range of rifles to choose from. There are 20 rifle providers you can study and choose the most suitable option. Here is some advice on how to choose your perfect rifle:
If you need help and advice, contact our experienced specialists. They will help you make the right choice.
Check the operation of all mechanisms and the quality of the soldering of the trunks
One or two light knocks on the trunk will tell you everything. If you feel a vibration, the gun is of poor quality.
Check the operation of the trigger
The sound during the descent should be ringing and sharp.
Pay special attention to the weight of the rifle
Experienced hunters say that the ideal ratio is 22% of the owner's weight. For beginners, it is best to choose lightweight models – 2.6-3.3 kg. Remember, you should feel comfortable with such a unit in your hands. It can be raised and lowered several times. If you feel physical fatigue or discomfort – this is not the right model for you.

This is an important component of a successful hunt. We provide a wide range of ammunition for rifles, centrefire rifles and rimfire rifles. In addition to rifles, you can also see a wide variety in the selection of shotguns, and pistols. Centrefire cartridges are made of thicker metal, which is considered more reliable due to its durability in harsh conditions. It is also safer because the central ignition cartridge is less likely to be accidentally activated on impact if dropped. The base of the central fire cartridge can withstand greater pressure, which provides the ammunition with greater speed and power. Separating the capsule from the cartridge means that you can make a stronger brass sleeve and add more powder for larger, longer-range, and more powerful projectiles. The cartridges from the central fire ammunition can be reloaded after the shot, simply because the cartridge case remains intact after the shot.
Summing up, we can say that there is no universal rifle. Following our tips and recommendations, you will be able to choose the gun that works best for you. We also provide a wide range of air rifles and rimfire rifles. Have a nice hunt!
