List of pump action rifles

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A pump-action rifle is a rifle where the forend can be moved forward and backward in order to eject a spent round of ammunition and to chamber a new one. Pump-action mechanisms are often regarded as faster than a bolt-action and somewhat faster than a lever-action, as it does not require the trigger hand to be removed from the trigger while reloading. Most pump-actions do however have a firing mechanism using a hammer,[citation needed] which leads to a longer lock time than the hammer-less mechanisms found on most bolt rifles. Furthermore, pump-actions often have little or no mechanical leverage in order to aid in chambering and primary extraction, as opposed to a traditional turn-bolt action .
