The Reservist's Rifle is a Small Guns weapon in Fallout 3, it's a unique variation of the Sniper Rifle. It uses less Action Points per shot and is 50% more durable than a regular Sniper Rifle. It can only be found on a Drifter in the Dickerson Tabernacle Chapel. This drifter is on a ledge in the chapel that cannot be reached, which means if if the drifter's body doesn't fall when you kill him there's no way to get this weapon. The best way to make sure his body falls is to use a high powered weapon like a Missile Launcher or a Grenade. Having the Bloody Mess perk will also increase your chances of a body part falling off the ledge.
Another well known tip for obtaining multiple Rifles from the drifter is to shoot the weapon out of his hands then pick it up, if you return three days later the drifter will have another Reservist's Rifle, you can repeat this method multiple times.
