First pic has everything in the stock and 16.5 inches long.





Everybody needs an AR7 !.................

The USAF adopted the M-4 .22 Hornet in 1949. They later added the M-6 which was a Dbl. barrel folder chambered in .410 and .22 Hornet. Nazi flight crews were issued a Drilling chambered in 2 X 12Ga. barrels over an 8X57 barrel.

I'm not disputing it as a survival rifle by any means. Food on the table from a $100 rilfe or a $4000 rifle is still food. And I see the niche were this rifle fills well. I would just prefer a different system, but beggers can't be choosers. :-D

I love the "idea" of this rife more than the reality. I read alot about it and the problems it has had w reliability. Henry has done some remarkable work trying to improve it and I believe they have.

I wish you the best of luck w your purchase. It seems to be hit or miss and like all .22's - can be somewhat "tempermental" or will digest anything & everything.

I would hedge my bets by using only high velocity 40 gr fodder. I believe that is what it was designed for. The barrel design can take an unbelieveable amt of punishment and still perform. (AF torture tests) Not sure but I think the magazine was the weak link.

Wish I had one of the WWII Nazi drilling guns. The multi barrel concept never took off.

I and Mrs 3T (it's her weapon) have run about 200 rds of various LR thru it now with no problem so maybe since Henry took back over they are solid now.

Or maybe we just got one of the good ones.
Either way they are fun and easily packable in her survival bag.

As much fun as my Springfield M6 Scout MM.

I forgot to add that it shoots about 2 inches to the right at 25 yards.

Yes it does but I haven't moved them yet.
The 200 rds thru it was in one day, 100 for her and a hundred for me a while back and I had no tools, then the prices and availability of 22 rds went up/changed and I packed it away.
Maybe this Spring.
But from the factory 2in right and I hate peep sights.
