Since 1959 the Henry US Survival AR-7 Rifle has been the choice of U.S. Air Force pilots who need a small-caliber rifle they can count on should they have to punch out over a remote area. Through the years the AR-7s reputation for portability, ease of operation and reliability has carried over to the civilian world. Today its a favorite of bush pilots, backpackers and backcountry adventurers who, like their Air Force counterparts, need a rifle thats easy to carry yet has the accuracy to reliably take down small game.
Like the original Henry U.S. Survival Rifle, this innovative, semi-automatic model is lightweight (3.5 lbs.) and highly portable. At just 16.5″ long, when all the components are stowed, it easily fits into the cargo area of a plane, boat or in a backpack. Its chambered in 22LR so you can carry a large quantity of ammunition without adding much weight to your gear.
When disassembled the pieces fit inside the impact-resistant, water resistant stock. Assembly is as easy as attaching the receiver to the stock, inserting the barrel, and screwing on the nut. In a few seconds, without any tools, the Henry U.S. Survival AR-7 is ready for action. It comes standard with a sturdy steel barrel covered in tough ABS plastic thats coated with Teflon for complete protection against corrosion. Its engineered for perfect balance and the ability to maintain its tack-driving accuracy, even after thousands of rounds.
