The 5 Best Semi-Automatic Rifles Overall

best semi-automatic rifles

The determination of the best semi-automatic rifle commonly lies in the needs and the preference of the gun owner.  As such, each semi-automatic rifle will possess its own accessories and inherently unique features.

The question now is, how does one go about choosing the proper semi-automatic rifle for their needs?

Admittedly, not by way of your standard gun list, as they usually take to publishing lists of the top ten survival rifles.  Those types of lists only make for a cluttered list that proves to be somewhat cumbersome at best, which in turn leads to confusion and indecisiveness for the ready.

To alleviate any confusion or headache, I have provided what you need to know about the top five best semi-automatic rifles on the market.

Ask any prepper or hunter, and they will tell you that each survival situation is unique.  As such, there are multiple tasks that you will be looking for your weapon to perform.  When making my suggestions, they will be keeping in mind the following reasons you may need a survival rifle:

  • CQC (Close Quarters Combat)
  • Self-defense within 200 yards
  • Perimeter defense beyond 200 yeards
  • Large game hunting
  • Small game hunting

Now, let’s take a look at some semi-automatic rifles.

Ruger 10/22 Takedown (Scoped)

This model is, by far, the best small game hunting rifle out there.  It has a durable design and breaks down into component pieces easily.  Easily splitting into two separate subassemblies, this rimfire is a semi-auto that sports an 18.5″ barrel length. It is undeniably one of the most affordable survival rifles on the list.

Remington 700

If you find yourself in the woods and have the chance to take down a massive buck, you will need a big game hunting weapon to get the job done.  Rest assured that the Remington 700 will not let you down.  It has a lethal reach of 300 yards or more, as well as a 220-grain load.  Boasted as the top choice of elite military snipers, this beauty comes loaded for bear.

Armalite AR-10 A2

The Armalite is a tactical rifle that serves as an excellent choice for all-around requirements, including tactical, competitive, and leisure.  With a gas-operated system, the projectile propels through the tube, before cycling back, forcing the bolt back and delivering one powerful kick.  With its two-shot tactical trigger and the convenience of a sight that is adjustable to both elevation and wind patterns, you can’t go wrong with this rifle.

Colt LE6920

Much like its brother, the M4, the Colt 6920 is a very formidable tactical rifle.  With its chrome-lined barrel and the addition of a muzzle compensator, there’s a significant reduction in the sound of your muzzle blast.  For smooth, dependable feeding, this model integrates a locking bolt with a direct gas system.  This model presents the attractive feature of a 30-round Magpul PMAG magazine for those in the market for continuous rapid fire.

Daniel Defense DM V5 AR-15

This gun is excellent for those who are just beginning as well as those shooters that are more seasoned.  With its user-friendly modular design, this model is a great place to start for those who are not already familiar with the machinations of a semi-automatic rifle.  With its two major components, the AR-15 is capable of swapping out its lower receiver and its upper receiver in a few seconds flat.  It is also worth noting that the DDM V5 has a slick upper receiver giving room for the addition of several additional accessories.

With all this said, there are several other great choices out there beyond the ones presented here.  However, this will give you a jumping-off point in your search and decision as to which is the best semi-automatic rifle for your particular needs.

According to NBC News, this is the most significant percentage of gun ownership they have ever seen in a poll.

According to data in 2013, 42% of Americans were gun owners. In 2019, 46% of Americans reported that they, or a household member, was a gun owner.

Currently, 52% of the population is affected.

Furthermore, over the years of polling, the percentage of Democrats who possess guns has also climbed.

When asked if they or anybody in their home had a gun in 2004, 33% of Democrats replied they did. Forty-one percent of Democrats acknowledged owning a gun in 2023.

With 41% of Independents stating in 2004 that they or someone in their family had a gun and 45% saying the same in 2023, Independents have stayed relatively stable. (Independents who stated they owned a gun rose to 49% in 2013.)

According to a Harvard/Harris poll, six out of ten respondents stated that having a gun helps one defend themselves against criminals.

The absence of law and order has made Joe Biden a great gun salesman.

Nashville Covenant School Trans Shooter’s Manifesto LEAKED!

Nashville Covenant School Trans Shooter’s Manifesto LEAKED!

(ConcernedPatriot.com) – During a phone call on Monday morning, the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation (TBI) refused to confirm if the alleged leaked pages from the Nashville shooter’s manifesto were authentic.

The suicide note, 19 diaries, and other artifacts that the transgender suspect in the Nashville Christian school massacre is suspected of leaving behind have all been withheld from the public.

28-year-old Audrey Elizabeth Hale, a transgender former student, murdered three 9-year-olds and three adults last month in a mass shooting at the school.

Hale fired off 152 rounds during the targeted attack at the Covenant School in Nashville, Tennessee.

The attack appears to be a deadly hate crime by a deranged trans shooter against Christian Americans.

The media has largely ignored the attack that resulted in six deaths, including three children.

The local authorities and FBI refused to release the manifesto to the public following the mass shooting by Hale in March.

Law enforcement officials were allegedly informed by TBI Director David Rausch in April 2023 that “the killer did not write about specific political, religious, or social issues” in these documents.

Numerous regional publications have verified the photos that Crowder released.

Phil Williams of News Channel 5 criticized the article, referring to it as a “selective leak of three pages.”

According to The Tennessee Star, “sources in the Tennessee General Assembly who were allowed to view the Covenant Killer Manifesto by the Metro Nashville Police Department” provided independent confirmation of the photos.

7th Circuit Court Rules AR-15s NOT Protected by 2nd Amendment

7th Circuit Court Rules AR-15s NOT Protected by 2nd Amendment

(ConcernedPatriot.com) – The United States Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit, a three-judge panel, ruled on Friday that AR-15s are not protected by the Second Amendment, overturning an injunction against Illinois’ “assault weapons” prohibition.

In the case of Barnett v. Raoul, U.S. District Judge Stephen P. McGlynn—a nominee of Donald Trump—issued the preliminary injunction.

The Seventh Circuit heard an appeal of McGlynn’s ruling and rendered a 2 to 1 verdict against the injunction.

The three judges were Michael P. Brennan, appointed by Donald Trump; Diane P. Wood, appointed by Bill Clinton; and Frank Easterbook, appointed by Ronald Reagan.

The majority on the tribunal that overturned the injunction was made up of Easterbrook and Wood.

They cited Heller’s (2008) assertion that “the right secured by the Second Amendment is not unlimited, like most rights.”

They continued by pointing out that the US Supreme Court determined in the Heller case that machine guns were not considered “bearable” weapons for the purposes of the Second Amendment since they might be “exclusively dedicated to military use.”

Next, Easterbrook and Wood discussed the parallels they discovered between M16s—which can fire in three-round burst mode or fully automatic—and AR-15s. They wrote:

“The similarity between the AR-15 and the M16 only increases when we take into account how easy it is to modify the AR-15 by adding a “bump stock” (as the shooter in the 2017 Las Vegas event had done) or auto-sear to it thereby making it, in essence, a fully automatic weapon.

In a decision addressing a ban on bump stocks enacted by the Maryland legislature, another federal court found that bump-stock devices enable “rates of fire between 400 to 800 rounds per minute.”

They added that both weapons “deliver the same kinetic energy” and employ the same ammo.

Judge Brennan dissented from the majority ruling, arguing that the Illinois “assault weapons” prohibition is unconstitutional because it lacks historical precedence in American culture and will fail if tried by Bruen (2022).

Brennan stated: “Preliminary injunctions against enforcement of the challenged laws are justified because the banned firearms and magazines warrant constitutional protection and the government parties have failed to meet their burden to show that their bans are part of the history and tradition of firearms regulation.”

The case is in the United States Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit and is Barnett v. Raoul, No. 23-1353.
