The Ruger 10/22 Takedown: World’s Best Survival Gun?

The 10/22 Takedown, already available in stainless steel, threaded-barrel and wood or synthetic stock versions, brings to the table the platform’s signature attributes: legendary reliability, accuracy and aftermarket parts availability.

So-called survival guns—at least when confined to a discussion of long guns and, more specifically takedowns chambered in .22 Long Rifle—have come in a wide variety of designs from a number of major manufacturers during the past half century. There was the classy walnut-and-blued Browning Semi-Auto .22, a trim, tube-fed number designed by none other than John Moses himself. Then there was the semi-automatic .22 Long Rifle ArmaLite AR-7 (still living on as the U.S. Survival AR-7 from Henry Rifles), which cleverly stored in its own buttstock and floated. Another model with military roots was Springfield’s M6, a single-shot rimfire (.22 LR or .22 WMR) or .22 Hornet center-fire and .410-bore shotgun over-under design that broke open for loading or storage. And then there was the Marlin Papoose, another semi-automatic .22 that featured a barrel that detached by way of a threaded collar and, in later years, a fiberglass stock and stainless steel construction. http://www.americanrifleman.org/articles...urvivalGun
