This is one of my favorite Back Packers Rifles period!

The coolest thing about the Henry U.S. Survival rifle is that it breaks down into three different parts that all store away in the plastic buttstock. Once broken down and stored, the entire rifle is 16-1/2-inches long and weighs only 2.5 pounds, so it is easily stored in your backpack, boat, or anywhere else you need to keep it. The stock is waterproof and even floats. Hence, one of the reasons why the U.S. Air Force adopted the rifle. It quickly disassembles and reassembles without tools, so field use is a cinch.
The U.S.-made Henry U.S. Survival AR-7 rifle includes two eight-round magazines that both fit inside the buttstock. If you keep both mags loaded, you’ll be ready with 16 rounds to take down that squirrel, rabbit, or bird that’s gonna be dinner.
One improvement on the modern Henrys is the corrosion-proof barrel, now covered in ABS plastic and coated with Teflon so your rifle can withstand all types of weather situations. Another improvement on the original design of the AR-7 survival rifle is the high visible orange front sight for quick target acquisition.
Will the Henry U.S. Survival Rifle replace your shotgun or your AR-15? No, but it is not asking too. It makes an excellent addition to your gear. Coming in at just under $200, you really have no reason not to own one.
