Must-See Tactical Rifles

IWI Tavor X95

Shooters with an appetite for outstanding function and reliability — and in extreme cases, a genuine need for self-preservation — appreciate the commitment and special treatment that goes into building a rifle that is as competent at home defending life and liberty as it is a reliable service gun. Whether it’s a quick-handling AR-platform rifle or pistol hybrid for quick and decisive action or a precision rifle, fine-tuned for superior long-range performance, these modern firearms are as American as apple pie. And never has there been a more robust market for tactical firearms than during these uncertain times, evident by a recent and sustained spike in gun sales. Be sure to take advantage of this uptick in sales by stocking your shelves and loading up your website with a wide variety of options in a wide range of MSRPs. The following are some fine examples to get you started down the road to increased profits.
