U.S. Survival AR-7 .22 LR
Don’t Leave Civilization Without One
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 should they have to punch out over a remote area. Through the years the AR-7’s reputation for portability, ease of operation and reliability has carried over to the civilian world. 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 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. It’s chambered in .22 LR 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 with a protective coating for complete corrosion resistance. It’s engineered for perfect balance and the ability to maintain its tack-driving accuracy, even after thousands of rounds.
The Henry U.S. Survival AR-7 is available in three finishes; Black, True Timber Kanati Camo Pattern, and True Timber Viper Western Camo Pattern. All models are equipped with an adjustable rear sight and a blade front sight.
You start with a Henry U.S, Survival Pack, add a Henry Repeating Survival Kit, some 22 LR ammo, a Tyler Gun Works custom “hawk”, a French Nail knife,a poncho made from a Hudson Bay blank and a country boy can survive.
The two words that best describe this rifle are “absolutely” and “awesome”. My wife got it for me as a birthday present, and it’s going right in my pack for squirrel hunting. As a US Marine, my buddies and I have been able to shoot some interesting firearms, but we were all really surprised by this one. Very accurate, and once you find the right rounds, really reliable. With CCI Velocitor hollow points at 20 yards rapid fire, all but one shot hit within the 3/4″ ring. Everyone at the range wants to see it-hold it-shoot it. I love it. I am definitely looking forward to my next Henry birthday.
I grew up in Iowa and was able to enjoy responsible firearems ownership and use from an early age, thanks to supportive parents and a midwestern culture which understood the importance of that aspect of our American heritage. It has been a challenge to raise my son with those same values and opportunities here in California. Fortunately, he has been able to experience the outdoors, including his 12 years in scouting (Order of The Arrow and Eagle Scout) as well as shooting sports, even though shooting opportunities are fewer and more restrictive than I experienced growing up. As a boy, Tyler began his firearms education (as did I) carrying an unloaded BB Gun on our firearms outings to learn safety and proper firearms etiquett. His ability and confidence progressed remarkably as he was given more freedom and responsibility, and he now works in gun sales at our local Turner’s Outdoorsman store while attending college. Tyler’s first rilfe purchase was the Henry AR-7 Survival rifle. His mother and I gave him his Brass 30-30 Henry for his 18th birthday, and we later presented him the Big Boy 44 Mag Eagle Scout and Order of The Arrow rifles in celebration of his attainment of the Eagle Scout rank. I first satisfied my “Henry thirst” with the 45-70 steel when it became available and most recently added the Henry Original Iron Frame to our collection. Regardless of what other weapons we take to the range, our Henrys always receive the most recognition and admiration from rangemasters and fellow shooters. Both Tyler and I look forward to adding the 1000 Man Shoot rifles to our collection. This will be Tyler’s 21st birthday present, and your assistance in getting consecutive serial numbered rifles would be most appreciated.
Thank you for keeping American tradition, values and craftsmanship alive and well for my son to pass on to future generations!
I would like to commend you on the rework of the AR-7. The Henry U.S. Survival rifle is the most fun you can have for $250! Right out of the box we started feeding it any 22lr we could find, and it ate it all like candy. The small groups we consistently were getting lived around 1-1/4 at 25 yards. My friends and I were amazed at this novelty rifle that had accuracy of competitor guns of twice the price.
Please see my YouTube review of the gun. To be honest, we rated your weapon with high marks. Our only complaint was the heavy trigger pull. I feel I could shoot tighter groups with a 4 lb trigger or less.
Happy with new AR-7
