Any "Survival" Rifle for sure depends on what exactly it is that you intend to "survive" but, this inexpensive little (SELF STORING) Stoner Rifle was always SOOO doggone cool! Read about it. (below)
There is a NEW modern version! Kewl!




The AR-7 was originally designed in 1959 by Gene Stoner of ArmaLite in response to the United States Air Force's need for a compact survival rifle. Following a period of production exclusively for the military, the AR-7 was introduced to the public market. It was featured in the early James Bond movie From Russia With Love, as well as other films.

Charter Arms acquired the rifle from ArmaLite in 1973, marketing it throughout the world. In 1990, Survival Arms, Inc. purchased the company and manufactured the rifle with engineering and material improvements, including the introduction of the sporterized AR-20.

Now AR-7 Industries, LLC will add new innovative models and accessories - enhancing the original design - moving forward into the 21st century of manufacturing.


This lightweight sportsman's version of the famous U.S. Air Force survival rifle breaks down in seconds, enabling barrel, action and magazine to fit neatly into its dirt and water resistant stock.
When stowed, the AR-7 is only 16 ½" long... less than a foot and a half. It's ideal for backpackers, boaters, bush pilots... anyone who wants the security of an accurate semi-automatic .22LR without lugging a heavy, full size rifle around.

The AR-7's unique self-contained design lets it sit for months without attention. Yet when needed, it's ready to shoot at a moments notice. Assembly is made quick and easy... without tools! Simply attach stock and barrel to action, feed the clip... and fire!

Uses high velocity .22LR rounds. Also features adjustable sights and convenient thumb safety.

Accessories list includes: soft carrying case, non-collapsible sporter stock, steel barrel, various round magazines, scope rings, a side scope mount plus a sporter conversion kit.

Always heard mixed reports of this fella. Big attraction is stowage in butt - and so (IIRC) making it float in water etc. All that is good but - no personal experience for actual shooting. If I thought or knew it was good enough I'd still buy one.

My compromize so far has been the Marlin Papoose - pretty compact and lives on floor of my truck. Stupidly tho it has as std - 7 round mags. Yeah 7 - crazy! I bought an extra 10 rounder so why the heck they can't supply that as std I know not!

Shoots very adequately - and mine has red dot to help the old eyes. Always good to have on hand and reckon I could wrap it all up in some waterproof cover if needed, instead of the nice zipper bag it comes with..

Those AR-7s are a lot of fun. When I was a teenager, my buddy borrowed his brother's AR-7 so we could go plinking. His brother had made a pistol grip for it (no stock). It looked like a broomhandle Mauser with a monster barrel. It looked cool, but very hard to shoot.

58$ in 1960 what? I havent bought a Gun For under 150 and that was my stainless 10/22
You want scary? I paid $83 for a Browning Medalist (.22 target pistol) in 1965, I still have it and it's in mint condition.

Go look up the price of those things if you can find them. I've seen one where the asking price was over $1000...... Don't know if the guy got it though.

The Browning Medalist
Oh that was an All Time Great Firearm.
I only ever shot one but, did not ever own one.
MINT condition...Just think about what it will be worth in a few more years.
The collector prices for the classic quality firearms are going through the roof.

Yup! The pistol is still held gently in it's red velvet lined case. The only thing that might devalue it a little is I had my initials engraved on the brass plaque on the lid of the case. (Wasn't thinking back then! :biggrin: )

I had it out to the range a couple months ago, it's always been one of my favorites.
