Talk:Auto Rifle

I know very little about firearms, but I thought that semi-auto and burst fire weapons automatically loaded the next cartridge as well, and that automatic weapons didn't get their name from their ability to do so. As I said, I'm far from an expert in firearms, and so I figured I should check first. Always use the DMR. This is craZboy557, signing off. 19:31, 30 August 2013 (EDT)

Semi-automatics don't fire again until the trigger is pulled though. The information I got about auto rifles comes from pretty much every source I could find about them without ending up on a government watchlist lol. --Mythic (talk) 12:11, 31 August 2013 (EDT)
Exactly, it's the firing thing, not the cartridge thing. Or did you mispeak? Always use the DMR. This is craZboy557, signing off. 12:53, 31 August 2013 (EDT)
Their ability to automatically load the next cartridge is also essential in their classification as automatic rifles.--Mythic (talk) 13:01, 31 August 2013 (EDT)
