I see no need to carry or pack any additional hardware other than my EDC.
I've had two AR7's. The first one was a trade in at a gun shop I where I worked weekends. I cost me a total of $10 and wasn't worth a plug Nickle! Couldn't get more than a couple shots without a miss feed.call it family tradition spanning decades.......shotgun behind the seat.
In my youth it was a single shot. Nowadays its a riot gun. I would like to try another AR7 but i have already been snake-bit three times.....maybe the 4th time will be a charm.
