In An Awesome Video Our Old Buddy HICKOK45 Spotlights The Henry AR-7 Survival Rifle
Here’s our old buddy Hickok45 and today he’s talking about the Henry AR-7 Survival Rifle. Now, I’ve owned one of these little bad-boys and if you’re ever found yourself lost out in the back-woods, this little piece can come in mighty handy. Since 1959 the venerable AR-7 has been the choice of U.S. Air Force pilots who need a small-caliber rifle they can count on should they have to punch out over a remote area. Through the years the AR-7’s reputation for portability, ease of operation and reliability has carried over to the civilian world. Today it’s a favorite of bush pilots, backpackers and backcountry adventurers who, like their Air Force counterparts, need a rifle that’s easy to carry yet has the accuracy to reliably take down small game.
Like the original Henry U.S. Survival Rifle, this innovative, semi-automatic model is lightweight (3.5 lbs.) and highly portable. At just 16.5″ long, when all the components are stowed, it easily fits into the cargo area of a plane, boat or in a backpack. It’s chambered in .22 LR so you can carry a large quantity of ammunition without adding much weight to your gear. This is a rifle that when broken down, it will fit into any backpack and will go anywhere you need it to go.
