The Ultra-Portable AR-7 is the Prepper’s Survival Rifle of Choice

Uncrate

The AR-7 is a compact and reliable survival rifle for when the sh** hits the fan. 

The AR-7 from Henry Repeating Arms is a lightweight, detachable, semi-automatic rifle chambered for .22LR. When disassembled, the receiver, barrel and eight-round magazine can all fit inside the rifle’s weatherproof/waterproof stock, forming a compact package that weigh only 3.5 pounds. The rifle is 35 inches when assembled and 16.5 inches when stowed. Throw it in a backpack, behind your seat, or in the cockpit of your plane.

In fact, U.S. Air Force pilots have been carrying the AR-7 in their planes for years, in the off chance they get shot down over a remote location and need a survival gun. The AR-7 is also a favorite survival firearm among bush pilots and backpackers, as it’s lightweight, compact and great for hunting small game.

Check out more details of the AR-7 below.

The barrel, eight-round magazine, and receiver can be stored inside the waterproof stock.
