 8, 10, 15 or 25 roundsAr-7 survival rifle was developed at American company Armalite (division of FairchildAircraft) during late 1950s, with intent to provide suitable weapon for crash-landed orparachuted aircrew members and others who might find themselves in a wildernesssurvival situation. The basic idea was to design a lightweight weapon, suitable forhunting a small game, which will be insensitive to elements and easily stored in acompact package. It seems that Armalite team succeed in this task, as the Ar-7 rifle is stillin production after almost 50 years since its introduction, although now by differentcompany. During 1970s, manufacturing rights for Ar-7 rifle were purchased by CharterArms Co (USA), which produced Ar-7 until about 1990. Between 1990 and 1997 Ar-7rifles were made by Survival Arms (USA), and today same rifles are produced in USAby Henry Repeating Arms Co.

 Ar-7 rifles are good wilderness companion guns, if you do not plan to face dangerousanimals such as wolves or bears. The key niche for Ar-7 is to bring a food to the table of a backpacker or survivalist, through small game hunting. And while low-powered .22LRammunition is not the best choice for self-defense against human beings (criminals, etc),it is still much better than a pocket knife, stone or bare knuckles - small .22Lr bullet iscertainly capable of doing lethal damage to human body. Ar-7 also is a good gun forpractice or recreactional shooting, as it is inexpensive, fires inexpensive ammunition andcan be carried in a compact package to a safe place to shoot withouth getting unnecessaryattention.
