They are offered by many foreign companies and in recent years some domestic companies have also undertaken their manufacture. They are made in two types: overlapping and juxtaposed canes. Generally i express hunting rifles they are offered in various high-power gauges and on them it is possible to mount aiming optics.
THEExpress it is therefore a very specialized weapon designed to fire safely at fairly close targets, no more than 100 meters beyond which, beyond which the convergence of the barrels tends not to overlap the shot patterns.
The delicacy in the shooting performance of the express rifles it also relates to the ammunition used, since varying the ammunition on which they are calibrated can lead to poor shooting accuracy.
The sights of the express are characterized by rear sights but all these weapons can mount shooting optics that can allow shots of good precision up to 150 meters.
- Express generally they are not equipped with automatic shell extraction, a system that if it jams could become lethal in case of hunting dangerous animals. The whole genesis of the express has taken this factor into account, which means that these weapons have to be produced by hand to generate removable blocks (eg trigger groups) of high ease of use. The cost of these guns is therefore extremely high both for the highly specialized workforce and for the very high quality materials that are the basis for building barrels, locks and trigger groups, elements that receive violent and very strong stresses.
Le express hunting rifles can in suitable calibers are used in hunting for boar for which there are no counter indications, even if the only limiting factor for an extended use is their price.
