Default 007's compact .22 rifle? legality...

ok. bear with me a second. I hope I'm still making sense at 2am.

In one of the bond films Q gives him this compact rifle.. no idea what calibre
and he has to use it later. It basically broke down into the stock.. Maybe its a little far-fetched for it all to collapse into the stock but it had me thinking about survival weapons. I keep a bug out bag, and medical/survival kit inside my car. One of these compact rifles would be great in a survival situation...

But I can't find anything by searching "compact .22 rifle" on google, or the forum. I'm guessing they DO exist.. and if so, what are the legalities of a weapon like this in Canada?

Maybe i'm just looking for the wrong thing? Or maybe its the 2am talking.... lol dunno. But I'd appreciate the help

Geoff

Colt AR7 now made by Henry. His was supposed to be a .25 but it is a 22lr. It will float and is marketed as a survival rifle.

Actually, it was an Armalite AR-7. Colt never made them.

I keep one in the trunk of my car with 100 rnds of ammo. I like it.

About 30 years ago, I had an "Explorer" piston built on the same action. It superficially resembled a Broomhandle Mauser, especially if you used an extended magazine. I designed a simple full-auto conversion for it, and built it; it worked, but from then on the gun was ONLY full-auto. Fun, but not worth the wrath of the ATF. Long since gone to the dump.

After Armalite, Charter Arms picked up the AR 7 design. They made the pistol version.

That's right. It was pretty well made before I ruined it. It was an interesting exercise anyway.

Ruger has a 10/22 breakdown model now. All the reviews I've read have been good.

Also google, "bicycle rifle". It is a very utilitarian firearm.
