Looking for your thoughts and opinions on the Henry Survival Rifle .22 that I have seen advertised quite a bit, looks to be a decent addition to a collection. Could fill the roll of a convenient firearm for someone's bugout bag with the ability to carry much more ammo than any other round due to size and convenience of the .22. Also maybe an addition to someone who is an avid outdoorsman or enjoys things like boating or atv/trail riding with the convenience of a rifle for the just in case moments? Idk just throwing ideas out there to get people thinking but I'm looking for your opinions, thoughts, cricisms, and even some reviews by those who may have purchased and used the gun... Thank you all for taking the time to read this and it's great to be back, I've missed this place and the wonderful people :)

I actually thought about buying a breakdown .22 survival rifle quite a few times, even handled them

at gun shows...just never pulled the trigger. Henry rifles are known for quality...and the AR-7 is one of the originals

from Armalite and genius Eugene Stoner...and used by the US Air Force. Easy to stow package and minimum weight.

What's not to like...?!

I love my lever action. 22 henry and have handled that takedown model. I like it but not as much as the ruger takedown 10/22. Have u looked at that as an alternative?

Look up the M6 Scout. It's a 410 gauge and .22 survival rifle. I believe they make one that shoots the .22 hornet cartridge.

I like that setup and the durable all metal design, the only plus that the Henry Survival Rifle has over the M6 is that it's semi auto compared to the M6 which is a break action single shot, however with enough practice one could be proficient at the M6 break action style... Def like the options here and I'm honestly surprised other manufacturers haven't attempted to purchase rights to the patent to make this style of gun

I believe CZ is now making these for Springfield...

I agree on the break barrel. It's truly the option of 410 or .22 that I like. If I could get my hands on the .22 hornet model that would be awesome!

Cheers.

I really can't say enough about my 10-22 takedown I think it is a great gun, in a great package. The gun is well made it feels so solid when it is locked together. I had had no issues with a ftf or fte it returns to zero every time(there is a suggested process by ruger in the manual to go through every time to insure return to zero). I have a 10 rd and a new redesigned 25 rd mag with it as well as a cheap bushnell scope I had laying around and the pack even has a scope pocket to ensure safe travel. I really think anyone who is interested in the gun will not be disappointed. I wish I could compare the two against each other but unfortunately I haven't shot the other gun mentioned in this thread, I hope this info helps you guys

Thank you Angry Dave :)

I am really considering this Ruger setup also as it looks decent and dependable, also looks durable and I love that pack it comes with... Dave is that pack Molle compatible? If it is I could def attach it to my bugout bag for ease of travel, access, and reduce space used inside my bag that can be used for other vital items :)

I love my Ruger 10 22 Takedown. It has shot every type of ammo I have fed it. No ftf no fte. Returns to zero every time. Plus I really enjoy having two 25 round magazines. The bag is nice also.
