8 Long Guns for Small-Framed Shooters

Not everyone who enjoys the shooting sports is graced with a Herculean physique. Those enthusiasts who have a more compact structure are usually looking for quality rifles and shotguns that feature a shorter length-of-pull (LOP), aren’t too heavy to swing, and produce a moderate or low level of felt recoil. Fortunately, there are several options that can be a great fit for smaller gun wranglers, some of which may surprise you. Here is a countdown of models to keep in mind:


8. Ruger Model 77 Rotary Magazine Rifles
Ruger blends the best of its rugged all-weather, bolt-action rifle design and reliable removable rotary magazines in the Model 77/357 and 77/44 rifles. Chambered for the .357 Mag. or .44 Mag. respectively, these 5.5-lb. carbines feature a stainless-steel construction, 18.5″ barrel, adjustable iron sights, a synthetic stock and a 13.5″ LOP. Chambered for classic magnum-power revolver cartridges, these rifles produce a modest kick while still providing plenty of power for close range hunting. Both models arrive with a set of 1″ stainless-steel scope rings.
