The first experimental bolt-action rifle, the Dreyse needle gun, came out in 1824. The Prussian Army adopted it as a limited service rifle in 1841. However, the single-shot rifle used paper cartridges. Many armies experimented with bolt-action rifles firing improved metallic cartridges in the second half of the 19th century. By the 1890s, most modern armies equipped their soldiers with magazine-fed bolt-action rifles firing cartridges not much different than many popular rifles used by hunters today.
