Основной причиной появления винтовок послужила необходимость увеличения кучности боя гладкоствольных ружей. Предшественник винтовки, гладкоствольный мушкет, отличался слабой точностью боя, так как при выстреле пуля свободно двигалась в гладком канале ствола и получала неконтролируемое вращение. Опытным путём было выяснено, что ружья с нарезкой в канале ствола позволяют точно стрелять на расстояния больше a hundred м.Первые образцы оружия с винтовой нарезкой появились в начале XVI в.
