It's cool, but it's still only a .22 LR and not really to be depended on IMO for what a breakdown rifle would be ideal for. Sadly .22 Mag doesn't function perfectly in auto-loaders, so...

Seriously. These take down rifles are a scam. A Marlin 60 with the stock off is broken down about the same. If you really need a .22 pack rifle, lets talk crickett .22. 2.5 pounds. Single shot. 11.5" LOP. That's what I'm talking about. The 13.5" LOP version still weighs less than 3 pounds. You cant beat that kind of mobility. At least not for the money.

Default .22 Mag -- Twice as Nice At Twice the Price!

I dunno, my .22 Mag version, albeit perhaps pricey, weighs 15 ounces and has a 13-5/8" LOP. Admitedly, it is at one end of the spectrum. The .22 LR is the weakest common round there is. Cheap, accurate, and popular. If I were manufacturing a new little gun that's what I'd make too. And I'd perpetuate the rumor that .22 LR is the best survival round. If a .22 LR as a takedown has some special meaning to you, fine, but I caution readers that there is no reason to have to rely on it in a takedown or any other circumstance, nor should you, if you are looking for a "survival" type gun. That's one of the implied purposes of a take-down arm. Whereas any gun is better than none, that "the .22 LR is the best overall" is parroted nonsense. The .22 Mag is twice as nice* for only twice the price!

*.22 Mag has basically the same features and benefits as the .22 LR but is twice as powerful -- velocity at 100 yards is the same as a .22 LR at the muzzle.

Do you ever really expect to shoot it at greater than 75 yards though? Especially without a scope. I'm sorry but I'm not shooting a rabbit at more than 75 yards. Or a deer. It's just not going to happen.
