Just want some opinions between the above choices pros and cons. AR-15+.22 conversion kit or just an AR-7?

Do you want to be able to shoot squirrels with it or defend yourself?

having 3 ar-7s i can not recommend it

i really liked the idea of the m6 scout from springfield in 22lr.410

with some 410 buck and some long rifle stored in the butt it seemed very convienient

The AR7 would probably be the better small meat gun. You can store it better as it floats also. The AR I would keep as a 5.56 personally.

The AR-7 can be a neat little gun, with some tuning. They are picky on ammo, but so can a .22AR. I had one and with a little work here and there, it ran like a top.

If had to pick between the two to carry in a backpack, id probably side with the -7.
