The Best New Rifles for 2014

The Best New Rifles for 2014

Rifle technology has been evolving for centuries to become the accurate and reliable firearms we use every day.

Current market trends are moving toward shorter, lighter carbines and completely modular weapon systems. This year at the 2014 SHOT Show, we saw more rifles than ever including modular, free-floating handguards in a variety of caliber choices to fit many objectives.

To find out more about the most current rifles on the market, check out our list of the best new rifles for 2014.

Arsenal SLR-104FR AK-47

The Arsenal SLR-104FR features a Mil-Spec stamped receiver and a hammer-forged and chrome-lined barrel, and it comes complete with a left-side folding polymer stock. One of the obvious highlights is the folding polymer stock, which is manufactured to the true specs of the original design and is made of Mil-Spec reinforced polymer.

Daniel Defense MK12

The Daniel Defense MK12 was designed with traditional SOCOM MK12 configurations, such as a stainless steel barrel and rifle length gas system. The 18-inch barrel is cold hammer-forged, and Daniel Defense also forges its chamber at the same time as the barrel, rather than cutting the chamber later.

Developed specifically for personal protection detail, the LWRC IC PDW carbine uses a 7.75-inch 5.56x45mm barrel mounted to a forged upper receiver. Combine the short barrel with its proprietary collapsible stock, and the IC PDW is an excellent choice for a concealable rifle.
