The Rifle or Country Rifle is a basic lever-action repeater rifle featured in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas.

DescriptionEdit

It takes the form of a Marlin Model 336. Hitting the aim button with this won't invoke an auto-target reticule, but instead skips straight to a free-aim mode. Its per-bullet damage rate is behind only to the sniper rifle, minigun, and desert eagle (at Gangster level and up), however, given its lack of a lock-on feature and slow reloading, it's not a good choice for beginners, but it does earn its keep in the hands of a decent marksman.

In The Truth's mission Body Harvest, Carl Johnson needs to rob a Combine Harvester from The Farm, just north of The Truth's farm in Leafy Hollow. The survivalists will start shooting Carl with rifles and attacking with shovels.
