Since 1959 the venerable AR-7 has been the choice of U.S. Air Force pilots who need a small-caliber rifle they can count on should they have to punch out over a remote area. Through the years the AR-7’s reputation for portability, ease of operation and reliability has carried over to the civilian world. Today it’s a favorite of bush pilots, backpackers and backcountry adventurers who, like their Air Force counterparts, need a rifle that’s easy to carry yet has the accuracy to reliably take down small game.
Like the original Henry U.S. Survival Rifle, this innovative, semi-automatic model is lightweight (3.5 lbs.) and highly portable. At just 16.5″ long, when all the components are stowed, it easily fits into the cargo area of a plane, boat or in a backpack. It’s chambered in .22 LR so you can carry a large quantity of ammunition without adding much weight to your gear.
When disassembled the pieces fit inside the impact-resistant, water resistant stock. Assembly is as easy as attaching the receiver to the stock, inserting the barrel, and screwing on the nut. In a few seconds, without any tools, the Henry U.S. Survival AR-7 is ready for action. It comes standard with a sturdy steel barrel covered in tough ABS plastic that’s coated with Teflon™ for complete protection against corrosion. It’s engineered for perfect balance and the ability to maintain its tack-driving accuracy, even after thousands of rounds.
The receiver is also coated with Teflon™ for superior weatherproofing and waterproof protection, even in harsh saltwater environments. The updated receiver is grooved, making it easy to top off with your favorite optics.
The Henry U.S. Survival AR-7 is available in two finishes; Black and Mossy Oak Break-Up Camo Pattern. All models are equipped with an adjustable rear sight and a blade front sight.

The two words that best describe this rifle are “absolutely” and “awesome”. My wife got it for me as a birthday present, and it’s going right in my pack for squirrel hunting. As a US Marine, my buddies and I have been able to shoot some interesting firearms, but we were all really surprised by this one. Very accurate, and once you find the right rounds, really reliable. With CCI Velocitor hollow points at 20 yards rapid fire, all but one shot hit within the 3/4″ ring. Everyone at the range wants to see it-hold it-shoot it. I love it. I am definitely looking forward to my next Henry birthday.
“I am very pleased with the quality and accuracy of this little gun. Everyone who sees it wants to know where I got it and what it is. My grandson who is just learning to shoot a real firearm thinks it’s the greatest and the fact that it’s small and lightweight makes it perfect for little shooters. This little gun has it all. It is easy to store and carry. It assembles easily in 30 seconds. Itâ€™s easy to clean and maintain, and great fun to shoot at the range. Thanks for producing such a fine product.”
