Battle rifles are full-powered rifles, that use detachable box magazines, often with selective fire capability.[citation needed] The difference between a battle rifle and a designated marksman rifle is often only one of terminology with modifications to the trigger and accuracy enhancements; many of the weapons below are currently still in use, re-designated as DMRs. For intermediate calibres firearms (e.g.: 7.62×39mm, 5.56×45mm) see List of assault rifles.

Below is the list of battle rifles. The table is sortable for every column.
