Henry U.S. Survival/AR-7 Rifle- Gloomy Scout Critiques
This black Scout survival and today I got a review for you of the Henry repeating arms Henry us survival rifle or commonly referred to as the AR 7 and this style of rifle was developed by Eugene stoner and it actually was in service with the Air Force for quite a while with our pilots but uh it's been through I think.
Charter Arms and maybe somebody else had it also but Henry I took it over and have been building them for quite a while now and so the concept for this rifle is you know it was used for pilots you know packing a plane don't take a lot of room and it's perfect for that there's a lot of different type of you know small.
Survival rifles like this but truly this is my favorite because semi automatic you know you're not single-shot it packs down to this size here and everything Stow's away that you can you know fit into a pack quite easily so yes I you know don't take a lot of room and it's got a lot of other features like the Teflon coating you may have remembered.
Us reviewing the Henry us survival kit the other week and and man honestly if I had these two items together I could survive for quite a while you know this in combination with this you know for getting small game and feeding myself but it weighs 3.5 pounds highly packable and portable at sixteen and a half inches long in this buttstock and.
Completely assembled is 35 inches but you can see that buck cap comes off the back there and you see this hive is orange there insert and you get two magazines I have one in the receiver there but there's one magazine and it's eight round mags but you could get an extra mag so you could have three mags in the system if you wanted to you have.
The receiver there and then the barrel now this will rifle will float and it's not completely water proof but it is you know pretty good water resistance but that's what that orange is there you can see it sealed up now you don't see any orange let's just toss it in and see how it does yeah plucking just fine go ahead and.
Open see what it looks like inside all right honestly doesn't see any any water in there that barrels dry this receiver has a little bit of water on it but not much there's a little bit bit in there but not much at all okay guys so you know we just dumped this still a little wet but you know this is good to have in a pack you know in your kayak or.
Whatever you overturn it and you get wet you know you're placing a straw situation you can steal you know put the flour on together and essentially fire so you just have a screw down here underneath the handhold of the stock there and it just it's a thumb screw and just screws into the barrel.
And we just got that water still wet let's go ahead and try to fire it real quick all right guys the barrel is a steel barrel cover with ABS plastic and you know cover has also has Teflon over it to protect it as well as the receiver here and the stock is also black plastic but you can also get a camo version of it the slide here has a little pin that.
Pulls out to pull it back you have a safety right here front and rear the magazine has a release here so you can kind of like push forward with your finger when it's in the trigger way little relief release it or just you know pull from outside and pull it down there's peach sights and it's adjustable you can flip it around to a larger or.
Smaller depending on on what you'd like there's an orange high vis blade you know for aiming but there's also a Picatinny rail if you would like to like a little rail mount for a you know scope if you'd like to put one on there but I feel like that kind of takes away from the rifle because then you have a scope and this to keep the rifle to keep up.
With whereas if you're just using the peep sight everything goes in the stock and you can rock and roll like that but you know to me a 22-4 survival situation if I'm going to have one I would say I'd have something like this now let's just say hypothetically a lot of people say you know end of the world zombie apocalypse emps and everything.
Else let's just say hypothetically something like that didn't happen I'm not you know a lot of people say I really have a regular 22 rifle well in my opinion I would rather have something like this in my pack and have a real rifle that I'm carrying you know no man carrying a two two three or something like that.
And then some people may say oh I can shoot deer with that way anybody who's been deer hunting know you're not going to kill a deer every day you know I mean I know hunters very good hunters that doesn't kill deer you know you know every but every few times they go hunting something small like this you got in your pack and it's solely there.
For you know actually hunting small gain and you know feeding yourself be perfect for that you know is this a defensive weapon know what and say it is but I mean could it be used for one definitely a 22 you know will kill in the right spot and being a semi-automatic you know you can deliver eight shots pretty quickly so but that's my opinion on that.
I would love to have you know something like this versus a long 22 rifle because I'm humping out on foot I'm going to have a ar-15 now in general surviving on hiking camping you know hunting I'm sorry camping hiking mountain biking whatever I'm fishing you know throwing something this in my pack you know I'm not planning on going to hunt but I may.
Have opportunity hunt so I could pull this out and use it or I could just have it there for that emergency you know what I mean that's what I feel like this rifles you know developed for truly you know it's on your vehicle getting your vehicle you're playing but whatever you know in your pack when you're hiking canoeing and just have it there for a.
Little bit of insurance alright guys so we shot some kneeling some standing we don't have any malfunctions you know even when we shot after we dropped in the water and we shot this target from about 30 yards away I'd say and you know that'd be that'd be a dead small game there you can see that pretty good shot pattern.
For you know for this rifle you know I mean this would be on a dead rabbit or squirrel definitely so I definitely recommend this ar7 you know a good packable rifle it's definitely what you're you know for a survival rifle for what it is it's one of the best I'd say there is on the market you know semi-automatic versus the single shot of.
A lot of other guns out there or rifles out there so you have that you know quick next shot which is important when you're hunting it's also very packable and you see you know sizable backpack and you know going canoe and kayak and hiking you know whatever it is zombie apocalypse whatever you know hunt for small game this is definitely rough I.
