Due to the calibers mentioned, the mare's leg is what came to my mind immediately. Probably wouldn't look as "black rifle" as the keltec or the kriss; that might help with game wardens and such.

It has a foldable stock that will allow it to fit in a bag or you can break it down if its still too big.

Sorry man I own one of these and even broken down its just to big for a pack roughly 23" broken down between the end of the barrel and the bottom rear where the BCG slides in . Now they make it in a pistol version with no stock that might be the ticket. But you could always have one of these made in 9mm , .40 or 10mm , jump through the hoops and apply for the SBR stamp . Thats compact enough 14" to fit in my soft brief case

That wood is absolutely beautiful!
Awesome job!

I second the sub-2000.
Wish I had one.

I wish they made one in 10mm to take the G20 mags.

A Ruger 77/357 or 77/44 are lightweight, all weather, accurate, rotary magazine fed, compact, bolt action rifle.
Also, a good possibility is a Rossi M92 in. 357 or. 44 Magnum. It can be had in a 16" barrel with a 9+1 capacity and a COPY of a time proven action.
If you're not worried about capacity or follow up shots, an H&R Handi-Rifle in .357 or .44 is an affordable option.

Single shot H&R Handi Rifle. Available in 357 and 44. One screw to take the barrel and hand guard off. You will pick up 300-400 fps because of barrel length. Can be ordered as a set with a shotgun barrel
http://www.hr1871.com/Firearms/Rifles/handiRifle.asp
Other than that, a Keltec Sub 2000 would give you a lot of fire power in 9mm or 40 S&W.
For real cheap, an H&R 12 or 20 gauge with buckshot or slugs. One screw to break down and you could shorten the barrel yourself. Just replace the take down screw with a thumb screw.
Just thought of the AR15 carbine. 2 pins and it is 2 pieces and very compact.

I think the Mare's Leg is pretty neat. If it were me, I'd choose that in .357 Magnum for compatibility with my wheel gun.

I bought the marlin 1894c in 357 for the same reason. Its really convenient to have a rifle in the same caliber as your handgun. If you handload, beware that lever guns are pretty picky when it comes to bullet profile.

Thanks for the advice. I do handload, so I'll keep that in mind.
