The Archdruid Report Ready Made Resources Solar Power Disaster Preparedness Store Emergency Supplies - U.S. Survival AR-7 Don’t Leave Civilization Without One COLLAPSIBLE FFL REQUIRED FREE SHIPPING 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 for survival should they have to punch out over a remote area. Over the years, the AR-7's reputation for portability, ease of operation and reliability has carried over to the civilian world as well. 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 but has the accuracy to reliably take down small game. Like the original Henry US Survival Rifle, our latest take on this innovative, semi-automatic rifle is lightweight (just 2.5 lbs) and highly portable.
