Remington 700 (Custom Black Stock)
Secret Service Agent Tim Collin (Dennis Haysbert) and hit man Michael McCarty (Richard Jenkins), having both been contracted to kill Luther Whitney (Clint Eastwood) (each without the other realizing it) both use take-down Remington 700 rifles with major customizations to improve accuracy. The rifle used by Agent Collins is a similar configuration to the one used by Geena Davis in the film The Long Kiss Goodnight (released a year before).

One of the two other agents at the range has some sort of take-down version of a Sako M995 TRG-S. It is probably the same rifle used in the film Most Wanted.
The rifle on the left is a Sako TRG-S. It can be identified by the placement of the Sako-logo in mid-magazine, the magazine catch and the long three lug bolt which clearly has a Sako-style shroud.
