Henry Rifles has released a new addition to their line of survival rifles with the U.S. Survival AR-7, a fully stowable .22 LR rifle. The AR-7 is perfect for bush pilots, backpackers, and backcountry adventures that want a reliable rifle that is easy to carry.

Like the original Henry US Survival Rifle, the latest take on this semi-automatic rifle is lightweight (just 3.5 lbs) and highly portable. At just 16 ½” long (when all the components are stowed), it fits easily into the cargo area of a plane or boat or in a backpack. And because it's chambered in .22LR you can carry a large quantity of ammunition, without adding much weight to your gear.

When disassembled, the pieces fit inside the impact-resistant, waterproof stock, which will float should it take a trip overboard. Assembly is as easy as attaching the receiver to the stock, inserting the barrel and screwing on the barrel nut. In just a few seconds, without the need for any tools, the Henry U.S. Survival AR-7 is ready for action.

The Henry U.S. Survival AR-7 comes standard with a sturdy steel barrel covered in tough ABS plastic and then coated with Teflon for complete protection against corrosion. Plus, it's engineered for balance and the ability to maintain its tack-driving accuracy.

  • I remember when Charter Arms first came out with this rifle. Very well built back then.

    Very pratical in design with the exception of the plastic front sight.

  • I had a Charter Arms AR-7 in the 80's. The barrel had a slight bow to it but shot well anyway. Even had a scope mount for it and a 30 round donkey d*ck. Fun shooter.

  • I wonder if Henry has fixed the occational troubles with the magazines. In the past the carbine would jam from feeding problems. I do like the look of the newest incarnation of the AR-7!
