Then you really don't even want a shtf firearm. Now you want a leveraction 22. Talk about things that can go wrong. Sell the AR and by a bolt action 22 and become a weekend plinker. The firearm for when shtf would be a mitary based centerfire and a easy to mantain AR is great for just that. What to you think the military use's. Not .22's. Seems you also want all sorts of miltary weapons by your other post. pps-43 ak-47, and so on.

If AR's aren't for you then look at a mini and/or an M1A. If semi-autos aren't for you then look at a lever action or bolt action. I would recommend that you have at least one center fire that you really like and trust, and then get a .22 to go along with that.

As a bare minimum, I think everyone should have 2 center fire rifles (one for longer ranges and one for shorter range), a .22, and a shotgun.

Just my .02

Well, what do want your SHTF gun to do? Do you want it to put food on the table, protect your property, be portable if you have to bug out, be easy to operate and do armory level maintenence on yourself?

What characteristics do you want?
What range?
What targets?

A lever action rifle would be the last thing I would get as a shtf weapon.

Weapon, in a shtf scenario that is what you want, a weapon.

If you want a good shtf weapon KEEP the AR, if its a cheap AR sell it. Use the money to buy a M&P Sport, M14, or Kel-Tec SU16. If you want a gun that is less accurate out to range but "more durable" get an AK or SKS.

Hell, save up for the next two months, buy a Henry and keep the AR.

American civilians buy as many AK47s as the Russian military
