New Rifles for 2020

For 2020, gun manufacturers are still attempting to find solutions to the glut of modern sporting rifles in inventory. One approach is value-added rifles, which offer high-end enhancements at a nominal price. Meanwhile, gunmakers are also getting consumers back in stores by reinvigorating the pistol-caliber carbine. For long-range enthusiasts, new chassis guns are in the pipeline and they are more user-adjustable than ever.
