The Rifle is a basic lever-action repeater rifle featured in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas[sup](?)[/sup], one might expect to see in the hands of a hunter or a cowboy. Hitting R1 with this won't invoke an auto-target reticle, but instead skips straight to a free-aim mode like that of its assault flavored brethren. Given its lack of a lock-on feature and slow reloading, one might think it rather pointless to use. However, with a per-bullet damage rate second only to the sniper rifle, mini-gun, and Desert Eagle (at Gangster level and up), it does earn its keep in the hands of a decent marksman.
