This rifle was initially designed as an Air Force pilot survival gun, and it has served in that capacity since 1959. It is now a crowd favorite among many in the survival community. It is pictured above broken down. The barrel, receiver, and two fully-loaded .22 magazines fit into the stock when stored. This makes it easy to be stored in a backpack, toolbox, or trunk. When the butt cap is replaced, it can float as well as avoid moisture easily. But rust isn’t an issue, as the rifle is coated in ABS plastic for corrosion resistance. In a few seconds, you can put the AR-7 together and put it to use. It weighs in at only 3 ½ pounds making it a very lightweight choice.
