Default Getting an Henry Survival AR-7

I have been wanting one of these for a while, and decided it was time.

Looked around and the best local price I could find was $265 plus tax and DROS, about $310 OTD.

I hadn't even thought about the new gun counter in the Base Exchange until a co-worker mentioned that they could probably special order it.
I stopped in today and started the DROS and paid $25.00. It will be in in a couple of days, so I. Should be able to pick it up on Pearl Harbor Day and I don't pay anything ($201.??) until I pick it up

OTD price totals ~$226.00 and that includes the $25 DROS.

Gotta love a price $64.00 below normal retail and also not having to shell out sales tax to the PRK.

Basically it is a nice light rifle (2.5 lbs) primarily for my bug out bag. I will be plinking with it a bit though. Probably run a bunch of ammo through it to break it in well.
I have read that the action can be a little stiff to start so it may jam on occasion until broken in a bit.

The last .22 rifle I owned was an old single shot Springfield that I bought off of the grandson of a Boston Mafia Don (Gennaro Angiulo) back in 1975.

Nice cheap ammo, and light to carry.

I will be DROSing a Henry on Wednesday when I pick up my 1911. I never thought to ask on base about pricing and availability. Maybe for my next gun. My LGS treats me pretty good and is closer than the base anyways.

I have the older model and other than being picky on ammo it has worked great. It's not a tack driver but it's a fun gun.

If I could find one of these under $400. I'd buy it in a heartbeat as a bug-out rifle.

I had one for a while, and I wasn't a fan. It's cool that it can break down and float and whatnot, but I found that it was super picky with ammo and had TONS of feeding/extraction problems.

Also, it can be damaged by dry firing it, which definitely not a good "feature" to have in a rifle without last shot hold open.

If the 10/22 Takedown had been around back when I got the Henry, I definitely would have gone for that instead.

Mine is a couple years old(2-3 tops), and other than some jams and failure to fires with cheap bulk ammo, I have had no issues. The thing works like a champ with CCI. ENJOY! I have a nice cheap scope, but have yet to go get some rings that fit the rail to attach it. Been lazy I suppose.

Since it's a Rifle some FFLs will let you add it to your pistol DROS when you pick up your 1911. Walk out with both.

I do this all the time and did this recently.

Ask.

My buddy has one, I've shot it a few times. The 410 is totally manageable and the .22 is fine too. When it was last sold you had a choice of .22lr or .22 Hornet both over 410 shotgun.

Savage makes one, but its not a break down gun.

Thanks for the heads up! It lacks alot of the things I love about the M6 (stock holds no rounds) but could be a decent alternative.

I spent some time looking into this rifle. Found out it has one big advantage over the M6 scout (other than being commercial available). The 410 is an open bore, meaning its OK to shoot slugs, which is not the case in the M6.

Stopped in to check on whether my AR-7 came in yet.

They had a box on the back counter marked "Henry U.S. Survival".

I said "Looks like you got my rifle in, I will be in tomorrow to pick it up!"

Guy at the counter asked my name and I told him. He looked at the box and said, "Nope, yours isn't here yet."

I looked at him kind of sideways and asked "How is it that I ordered the Henry 10 days ago, did the DROS paperwork, was told that I was the first person to order one of these rifles, and now you have someone else's rifle here but not mine?"

He said "Let me take a look at the log and see if this guy has completed all his paperwork."

He found out that this guy had ordered his rifle a couple days after I had, and that he also hadn't even started his DROS paperwork. So, he pulled his order form off of the box, and taped mine to the box and said, "See you tomorrow when you pick up your rifle."

This is why I like dealing with independent, small, (no employees) dealers.
They don't blame anybody or mess things up like that.

Yeah, but the BX got it for me at $40.00 less than the cheapest local dealer, and I also saved another $25.00 for not having to pay any tax.

For a $65.00 savings I will put up with a little mistake. That is why I stopped in to check on the status.

I had posted this in another thread but people thinking about a take-down can also check out www.packrifle.com , available in CA.

Also, see several vids on YT, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ASLHjeciPOs&feature=plcp
and also search there for pak-rifle.

I just couldn't live with the way my AR 7 came so I tweaked it a little and made it into a AR 7.5

Added a bull steel barrel with ventilated shroud, standard AR pistol grip and butt stock.


What it took to fit a pistol grip and A1 standard AR stock
