The result was a general rearming of civilized nations with the bolt-action, .30 caliber repeater. This arm fought the Russo-Japanese war and has met every military requirement, but is not likely to see service again in a contest of such magnitude. Our own weapon of war, the New Springfield, belongs to this type of arm, and its good qualities and defects as a hunting rifle will be mentioned in their proper places.

The heavy, double express rifle is the preferred arm of big game hunters in Asia and Africa. Since an increasing number of American sportsmen are now shooting in those countries this weapon is entitled to a due amount of space in a volume devoted to sporting arms, even though few of them are built in America or used here. The double rifle is the most powerful hunting arm made.

Three barrel guns, consisting of two shotgun tubes with a rifle barrel lying beneath, are well adapted to hunting purposes under certain conditions, as where small game abounds together with large game of a non-dangerous character. The use of this gun has always been limited with us, however, and they are now in less demand than formerly. The same can be said of the gun and rifle combination, one rifle and one shotgun barrel, and of the double barrels which are rifled only at the muzzle, permitting the shooting of both loose shot and ball from one tube.

The decade between 1900 and 1910 must be credited with the most modern type of rifle, and the one that bids fair to replace all others in course of time—the automatic or self-loader. Of these we have three models, all differing essentially in mechanical principle but everyone a weapon of merit. All the gun inventive genius of the world is now turned to the perfecting of an automatic rifle in which both the soldier and the sportsman are equally interested. At present self-loading arms are not thought to be simple enough in mechanism to withstand the exacting demands of hard campaigning, but the nations of the world are waiting for them.

Just now America leads in automatic firearms, but what a year will bring forth no one can tell. Germany is destined, probably, to take a leading part in the development of military self-loading rifles.
