Henry U.S. Survival Rifle AR-7

The Henry U.S. Survival AR-7 comes in basic black, and a complex cammo.

When I think of the Henry brand, I don’t typically think about survival rifles. The company is much more well known for their lever-action powerhouses. But Henry makes other things, too, and the U.S. Survival Rifle, or AR-7, is a winner. It is compact, practical, and the AR-7′s accuracy will make you think twice about your go-to rimfire rifle.

The basic concept is simple. Henry has refined a design that works into a rifle that blows away a lot of the competition’s rifles that don’t come apart. The U.S. Survival Rifle is a minimalist platform that works. When compacted, as it will be most of the time, the AR-7 is easy to stow. When put together, it is easy to use and surprisingly accurate. And the cost stays consistently under $300–sometimes well under.

Now if it only came in a caliber where the ammo was readily availible. Dodgy

I have one of these and they are cool little rifles. The stock has slots for two mags but if you can store a third one inside the receiver for a total of 24 rounds. They claim it will float (never tested it) however the cap on the end of the stock is a friction fit with no gasket so I doubt it would keep water out for long.
Ammunition, it's the new lead bullion. Buy it cheap and stack it deep.
